J Vineyards & Winery Cuvée 20 Brut 750ML
J Vineyards & Winery all of the grapes for this cuvée (blend) were hand-harvested into small quarter-ton bins and placed as whole clusters, without destemming, into our special Coquard presses for a gentle pressing cycle. Juice from the various vineyard lots was fermented and kept separately until blending in mid-November. The cuvée was assembled and cold-stabilized to remove excess tartrates and then bottled in the spring. The cuvée included 30% oak-cask aged wines that were carefully selected for this blend. After the secondary fermentation occurred in the bottle, the wines aged for three more years in our cool cellar. The wines were carefully riddled to remove the yeast sediment. Following disgorging, a dosage liqueur of reserve wine and pure cane sugar was added to the wine. An additional six months of aging on the cork before release ensured a perfect balance of flavors.
