Tasting notes: The wine's bright, sustained golden color is enhanced by an attractive, persistent string of bubbles. The elegant, dense, complex bouquet reveals a wide range of aromas such as lime blossom, hints of toasted bread and honey. The wine's splendid mouthfeel is full and rich but well balanced, leaving delightful freshness on the palate.
Producer: While Agoston Haraszthy was most recognized as being the Father of California viticulture, he was also the father of six illustrious children. His third son, Arpad, spent over two years studying in Champagne, France learning the craft of sparkling wine and later became the first to introduce Méthode Traditionelle sparkling wine into California winemaking. Arpad’s sparkling wine, Eclipse, was one of the most celebrated in the nineteenth century. La Victoire pays tribute to his legacy.
Vineyard and Winemaking: Made up of 70% Pinot Noir, from Premier Cru vineyards from the Montagne de Reims, and 30% Chardonnay, mostly from Grand Cru Mesnil sur Oger and Chouilly, the wine received a dosage of 8.7 g/L. By law in Champagne, aging is 15 months minimum for non-vintage wines. Our La Victoire was aged more than 3 years.
