From America’s most honored champagne house, comes Thornton Winery’s top-of-the-line sparkler, 1992 Brut Reserve. Their Brut Reserve comes from a long line of single, double, even triple Gold Medal winners as well as Best of Class and Best of Region honors. The best cuvées are selected to create Thornton’s Brut Reserve in the traditional French Méthode Champenoise style. Bottled in 1993 and aged in the bottle for six years before disgorgement (the final stage of production) in 1999.

This Champagne is lean and lively with a fine mousse and lightly toasty nose. It is full, firm and frothy on the palate with light citrusy flavors and subtle highlights of creamy yeast. This polished wine stays bright and zesty from front to back. Winemaker Jon McPherson has crafted another beauty.
