Production Notes

The 2016 Libelle is a very unique offering as it is a sparkling wine made from 100% Picpoul Blanc grapes and vinified in the Methode Champenoise, where the secondary fermentation occurs in bottle to create natural carbonation. The identity of the Picpoul Blanc grape is preserved with bright acidity and hints of key lime and dried mango. 

A balanced palate with hints of brioche and crushed pineapple create a delicious and rare wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif, with cheese and charcuterie, oysters or any celebration.
