Overview - Dr. Konstantin Frank Sparkling Blanc de Blancs (2013)

Winemaking and Aging
The 100% Chardonnay grapes were hand-picked into small 40kg crates with careful bunch selection in the vineyard. Whole cluster grapes are immediately pressed. From harvest to pressing extreme care is used in handling the grapes to avoid any excessive crushing or brushing. Only the first most delicate pressing, called the Cuvée, is used. 7.5% of the juice is barrel fermented in used French oak. The base wine was bottled July 2014.

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.

The Wine
Characters of fresh pastry dough, bartlet pear, lemon curd, and minerality. The crisp acidity and subtle mineral undertones give the wine great structure and elegance. Leading with a fine mousse, the mouthfeel is creamy and profound. Long crisp apple finish.
