Brut LD Magnum 2011

2011 Brut LD  Magnum
The longer the wine is aged on the yeast in the bottle, or en tirage, the tinier the bubbles, making the wine richer, creamier, more refined, and elegant. This vintage is aged nine years en tirage, resulting in pinpoint, diffused bubbles, so it just seems to effervesce away in your mouth. Tête de Cuvée, top of the line quality, this vintage is currently available exclusively in magnum.
