With an emphasis on craftsmanship, Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard produces distinctive sparkling wines in the traditional method. Extended lees contact builds weight and texture on the palate. Perhaps no sparkling wine in our portfolio exhibits this added complexity like the 2006 Cuvée Brut. Bottled in August of 2007 it spent ten years ageing on its lees prior to disgorgement.
The Cuvée Brut 2006 is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This final disgorgement shows subtle orchard fruit aromas, beneath layers of brioche toast, and a custard-like density on the palate.
