Wedding Cuvée is our interpretation of a Blanc de Noirs. In blending this wine we choose Pinot Noir lots that are extremely expressive and fruit forward. Then in a decided step away from convention, we blend in a bit of steely Chardonnay to add a firm acid backbone. Hand harvested in the chill of early morning our Pinot Noir is gently pressed as whole clusters. The juice slowly ferments in stainless steel tanks at 62° to 65° f retaining bright fruit aromas and flavors in the wine. The dosage for the 2010 Wedding Cuvée is 2ml Blanc de Blancs LEX (100% Chardonnay), 2ml Special LEX, (50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir) and 12ml of a pre-fermentation maceration Pinot Noir picked at sparkling Brix 21, allowed to sit on the skins for color and bouquet.
