Leveret IQ Methode Premium Brut
Traditional methods of sparkling winemaking are used, firstly through a primary fermentation with a neutral yeast strain, followed by a complete malo-lactic fermentation. The base wines are then blended after 12 months maturation on lees prior to filtration and tirage. Tirage is the bottling of the base wines after the addition of sugar and yeast. Bottle fermentation then occurs at 11C, with bottle pressures getting to 6 bar.
This premium Brut has a fine and persistent bead. The aroma shows complex yeast autolysis characters of nuts, freshly baked bread, wild mushrooms and marzipan. The fruit aromas are totally entwined with the secondary characters but are still present enough to provide a citrus and stone fruit base. The palate is amazingly fresh, with a gentle effervescence and long textural finish. A perfect accompaniment to long hot summer days, good friends and celebrations…
