Wine Description

Yellow-gold. Peach and pear on the nose, along with a hint of honey; not very expressive today. Juicy pit fruit nectar flavors are given a bitter edge by a touch of lemon zest, which adds grip. Finishes with an echo of citrus skin.

Winemaker's Notes

Drync team notes: A beautifully honeyed, aromatic Loire-valley take on Champagne: fresh, vibrant, light and complex.

Winemaker's notes: We work our Brut according to the Methode Traditionnelle, but with a personal touch. We choose to harvest the grapes at a good maturity, early in the morning to help retain the quality of the fruit as much as possible. The must is fermented in stainless-steel tanks in our cellar. The wine then ages on its lees prior to bottling. Once bottled, the natural sugar from the grapes will re-ferment , it is this second fermentation that creates the bubbles. The wine then spends a long time, about 20 months, sur latte before being disgorged (when the crown caps are removed and the ”mushroom” cork is fitted).

    Rich in flavor and light on the palate. This wine is just fantastic. Bright and refreshing, with ripe fruit flavors and layers of honey and brioche. Perfect autumn bubbly!

    Delightfully fun and full sparkling, with a hint of honeysuckle on the nose, and a honeyed edge on the finish!
