Production Notes

The 2018 Libelle is a very unique offering as it is a sparkling wine made from 100% Picpoul Blanc grapes. The wine is vinified in the Methode Champenoise, where the secondary fermentation occurs in bottle to create natural carbonation. Aromas of Meyer lemon, citrus, and a touch of toasted almond jump from the glass. The palate is bright in acidity, complemented by flavors of crushed pineapple, mandarin orange, and a zesty lemon. 

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.
