Brut Sauvage is created from 100% estate grown Pinot Gris which makes it a drier style of sparkling wine. Here the winemaker adheres strictly to traditional sauvage, or “wild” fermentation methods. The low sugar level obtained yields a rather dry bubbly of great purity, pale salmon in color with a delicate but persistent mousse. The aromas of slight truffle with mineral and bready notes. The finish is structured, flavorful and clean. The bright acidity makes this wine a perfect pairing for oysters, sushi and cream sauces, and drinks beautifully on its own.
