Product Description:

"Pale yellow with fine bubbles sparkling in the glass. The nose is reminiscent of white almonds, kiwis and strawberries, with a trace of white flowers. Opening in the glass, this sparkling wine shows tasty notes of hazelnut, peach and yeasty baked bread. Well-balanced and harmonious in the mouth, the fruity acidity lifts the palate with an agreeable freshness. Spicy notes of pistachio linger on the long aftertaste.

Méthode traditionnelle; whole-cluster pressed; first fermentation transpires in temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats, transforming the must into still wine. Six months later, the different grape varieties are blended to reach the particular flavor profile of Marquis de Perlade with its distinguishing taste. Blended wine is then bottled with a specific yeast added to relaunch the second fermentation in bottle. The riddling process lasts a minimum of 12 months prior to disgorgement. Finally, the dosage is added to provide the brut style of this blanc de blancs.

Since the late nineteenth century, a small number of Alsace producers have been making sparkling wine from the white varietals of the region. Following this tradition, Marquis de Perlade French Sparkling Wine was introduced in 1996. This Vin Mousseux de Qualité (VMQ) is produced from white varietals sourced from quality growers both within and outside the boundaries of Alsace." -Importer
