An elegant sparkling wine made using 'old world' techniques utilized by a few of the world's top producers. The base wine is barrel fermented and barrel aged for 10 months in small French Oak barrels then aged in the bottle (en tirage) for an amazing 7 years before release.

"The 1988 vintage displays a subtle combination of aromas including honey and toasted almonds with hints of raspberries and apples. On the palate, the creamy entry is complimented by notes of orange zest and rich Pinot Noir characteristics of cherry and wild berries. Apple and pear flavors are delicately balanced by firm acids and a rich mouthfeel on the finish."

The Montreaux style is rich, creamy and full-bodied. Base cuvée is 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay.
