DESCRIPTION:

1701 Brut, a blend of mostly Chardonnay and a little Pinot Noir grapes. Produced using the Metodo Classico technique (traditionally used for Champagne) where secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle itself for a period of at least 30 months. The first sip will bring you a zesty surprise with a hint of pear leading to a long and complex finish.
