This En Tirage is a really special sparkler made by a boutique producer (only 300 cases made!) and is reminiscent of an aged Champagne.
It recently earned high accolades in a blind Champagne tasting that I hosted (it placed second behind a 2010 vintage bottle of Dom Perignon!) and in front of all the other Champagnes!
This is a really special wine at a special price! It's got a beautiful golden hue, a creamy nutty and yeasty character that will have your friends thinking it's a $200 bottle of Champagne! Even after a long time aging, it still has really bright acidity and fruit flavors dominated by green apple and pear. Offered to you at a special price with the class below retail.
"Late Disgorged" means that this wine sat "sur lies" or on the yeast for an extended period of time - 6 years in this case. That creates a particularly creamy and nutty sparkler with lots of brioche and fresh baked bread notes. After all these years on the yeast, you start to get some almost "funky" flavors like very ripe apple juice. It's almost a bit sweet too.
If you like aged champagne, you've got to try this wine!
