Blanc de Blancs Pas Dosé

As tradition says, the name is due to the production of white wine from white grapes, Chardonnay in the case of Alta Langa.

COMPOSITION OF THE CUVÉE: 100% Chardonnay

PRODUCTION TECHNIQUE: Harvest by hand with selection of the grapes in the vineyard. Pressing of the single vineyards using the must bloom only; then, fermentation in steel at controlled temperature through the use of indigenous yeast.
The tirage after about 9 months is followed by 42 months of aging in bottle on the yeasts. The process is concluded with the manual remuage, the disgorgement and the addition of the same wine as liqueur without adding sugar, in order to obtain a Pas Dosé wine.

TASTING NOTES: Very fine and persistent perlage.
At the nose it opens with an intense mineral note that recalls the marly limestone soils typical of Alta Langa region, followed by an enveloping note of pastry, yeasts and a light scent of lemon and warmer notes, as the passion fruit that stands out on the rest of the bouquet.
In the mouth we can find the same aromas with definite and balanced character, almost creamy, characterized by long persistence and great freshness.
