Joy! for the Holidays This is a “new” Joy in the sense of being a different blend. This has 75% Chardonnay and 25% Pinot Noir, while the last release was a Blanc de Blancs (100% Chardonnay). This Joy! is vintage 2006, aged fifteen years en tirage, produced exclusively in magnum. It is a remarkable wine that offers nuttiness, honey and bright fruit with luscious richness and a gorgeous long finish. Made for celebrations. Current disgorging 60 cases. Comes in a magnum gift box with an Iron Horse champagne stopper. Ground shipping included.
By nose: Meyer lemon and Filbert nut. By mouth: Ripe red apple, rich and creamy with a touch
of lemon zest.
Location. Location. Location. Our proximity to the ocean in cool, foggy Green Valley yields a very distinctive style of Chardonnay, especially for Sparkling.
The most salient characteristic of this wine, from a wine-making standpoint, is the 13 plus years en tirage. The composition of the dosage, or finishing element, is 10 ml Special LEX and 10 ml Brut LEX. The goal of this bubbly is to spark joy.
Lighter than air, puffed up high and golden brown, it’s center still soft and molten, this is a swoon worthy dish to pair with Joy!View Recipe
