Overview - Dr. Konstantin Frank Blanc de Noirs (2014)

METHOD
The grapes were hand-picked into small 40kg crates with careful bunch selection in the vineyard. The whole cluster grapes were immediately pressed. From harvest to pressing, extreme care is used in handling the grapes to avoid any excessive crushing or bruising. Only the first most delicate pressing, called the Cuvée, is used. 5% of the Pinot Noir juice is barrel fermented in used French oak. The base wine was bottled the following Spring after harvest.

Secondary fermentation took place in bottle as per the traditional Méthode Champenoise. The wine was left in bottle with the lees for a minimum of 4 years in the underground cellar at Chateau Frank. Each bottle is individually disgorged, corked, crowned, and labeled by hand. The month of disgorgement is listed on the back of each bottle.

VINEYARD
The grapes for our sparkling wines are located on separate plots on our Keuka Estate vineyards. These vineyards were planted by Willy Frank in the late 1970s with the sole purpose of producing sparkling wines.

THE WINE
Delicate aromas of freshly baked bread, Asian pear, green apple, white flowers, and fresh strawberry. Leading with a fine mousse, the mouthfeel is fruity and profound with mineral notes, creaminess, strawberry, and pineapple. Long crisp apple finish.
