Tasting Notes: Aromas of oyster shells, wet rocks, white flowers, sweet herbs, straw, ginger, and white nectarine. Polished, tight and dense, the compression of time unwinds, revealing fresh flavors with dimension and depth.

This fascinating wine reveals Seth’s passion for Champagne and the age-old technique of using “reserve” wines to blend with younger vintages, thus presenting a house style, which is one of the core components of terroir. This wine will NEVER be produced as a sparkling wine, however. Aged in a non-oxidative solera format, the goal here is to present the soul of the winery and winemaker by reducing the influence of vintage and vineyard site.
