True to our French origins, all Blue Pyrenees sparkling wines are created using the traditional “methode champenoise” system, meaning that the bottle you are drinking from is the same bottle in which the secondary fermentation occurred. The Blue Pyrenees Vintage Brut 2010 also expresses the special qualities of the component wines chosen when creating this consistent house style. The Blue Pyrenees team has incorporated the best cuvées from the three classic sparkling varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, each presenting varietal and regional characters, creating a beguiling complex blend. The judicious use of small amounts of reserve wine adds more complexity and maturity whilst helping to maintain consistency from year to year.

Winery Tasting Notes
Brilliant straw green with a pale pink hue.
The complex aromas of toast, freshly baked biscuits and nougat are evidence of extended aging on yeast lees. Subtle hints of lemon and apple give an overall impression of freshness and vitality.
The 2010 Blue Pyrenees Vintage Brut exhibits a fine and persistent bead, concentrated yeast autolysis characters plus red & green apple fruit flavours. The lively palate is driven by a fresh acidity, which lingers harmoniously with the aged complexity.
Released as a mature style it is ready to appreciate now, but can be aged with confidence for 5 years or more.
