Teddy Hall Tribute Methode Cap Classique 2003

Vinification entailed a gentle pressing before the juice was inoculated with yeast in order to start the primary fermentation. Part of this wine was fermented in second fill French oak barrels. Five months later, the wine was removed from tank and barrel. It was inoculated again to undergo its second fermentation in bottle. The bottles rested in a temperature-controlled cellar for 78 months. This process ensured the autolytic ‘just-baked’ bread character that is so typical of the wine. The final step was expelling the dead yeast cells and topping up the bottles before the final corking. Tasting note: As befits a bubbly, this Blanc de blanc Methode Cap Classique is full of vigorous fine bubbles! A touch nervous with its vibrant acidity, carrying the Chardonnay’s fruit and yeasty, freshly baked bread, honey, caramel and fresh cream flavours. Complex with great depth.
