VdF Love Joy Méthode Ancestrale, 2019 | Chablis, Burgundy
Region: Chablis, Burgundy
Tasting Note: Fresh lemon, dill and ripe apples. A deliciously lively sparkling wine.
Background: From the youngest vines from across the domaine’s holdings.
Méthode Ancestrale is an approach that predates Champagne by more than 200 years.
The primary fermentation is stopped before it has finished and a secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle. There is no dosage and the wine is not disgorged to remove any sediment or remaining lees. It’s a hands-off approach – minimal intervention, maximum character!
Serving: Please stand the bottle up for a few hours before opening and do not shake (!!) Cold - but not too cold! (10–12°C).
