Chardonnay was hand harvested during cool, morning conditions and transported to the winery where it was whole-cluster pressed. Light press juice was chilled and settled for 24 hours, then racked to ferment in a stainless steel tank. The fermentation was kept cool to retain fruit aromas and preceded to dryness over 7 days with Prisse de Mousse yeast. The finished wine was racked and naturally cold stabilized followed by a polishing filtration. A first dosage was added along with yeast and the wine was bottled for the 2nd fermentation. After 12 months on the yeast wine was disgorged and finished dry with 0.5% sweetness to focus the crisp, refreshing acidity and creamy mousse.
