Charles de Fere Sparkling Chardonnay NV

Winemaker's Notes:

This grower is locted a few miles West of the Champagne region's line of demarcation. Which means it can't be called Champagne, of course. But it's made from 100% Chardonnay grapes and produced following methode traditionnelle. A golden wine with a nice steady bead of bubbles that deliver aromas of apples, honey and bread dough. The wine begins to emphasize fruit aromas and flavors as it opens up, with a lovely and full mouth feel and a pleasantly langorous finish.

Founded in 1980, we offer wines from a variety of countries and key production regions around the world, seeking to express the qualities of our wines with an “art de vivre” and style that consistently enhance terroir, provenance, history, heritage and quality. Each house in our family of wineries has a unique history, identity, and style, yet all are united in the pursuit of superior quality. Simultaneously, we lead innovations in the wine world that address climate change, reduce waste and CO2 emissions, and protect the long-term sustainability of winegrowing.
