The Blue Pyrenees Vintage Brut 2008 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, which each present varietal and regional characters, creating a beguiling complex blend. The judicious use of small amounts of reserve wine adds complexity and maturity whilst helping to maintain consistency from year to year.

Winery Tasting Notes
60% Chardonnay, 31% Pinot Noir and 9% Pinot Meunier.
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 red apple give an overall impression of freshness and vitality.
The 2008 Blue Pyrenees Vintage Brut exhibits a fine and persistent bead, concentrated yeast autolysis characters and citrus 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.
