Benjamin Bridge Methode Classique Brut 2014
This product is currently sold out.
Made from 100% Chardonnay grown in BB's certified organic vineyard in Kingsport. Wild fermented in a combination of French oak and stainless steel and aged on lees for four years. Only 2,500 produced. It is a beautiful match for a late-summer seafood feast, or freshly picked chanterelles, acorn squash and vegetarian-dishes with a spicy flare.
From Head Winemaker, Jean-Benoit:
The nose is multilayered and enticing, with notes of toast, orange blossom, honey and a touch of nougat.
The palate is profoundly vinous yet energetic, with its quiet power interlaced with hints of apricot and peach confit.
