Winery: Domaine Philippe Brisebarre
Region: Loire Valley
Site: Vineyards above Vouvray, soils clay-calcaire. Vines are 25yrs of age producing 65HL/Ha.
Grapes: 100% Chenin Blanc
Fermentation and Aging: Classic vinification in temperature controlled cuves after soft pressing and clarification. After six months of settling in cuve, the wine is bottled and undergoes its second fermentation in the bottle. After three years "sur latte" the wine is disgorged and finished.
Notes: With its additional year on the lees and slightly lower yield, the vintage dated Fines Bulles offers even more complexity, with the yeasty brioche even more well defined. Remarkably fine bubbles with an elegant impression on the palate and beautiful long finish. Residual sugar about 10g/L. Keep for up to ten years in the cellar. About 4,500 bottles produced. 90 WS Dec 2013. Coup de Coeur Guide Hachette 2008.
The winery does not have a website at this time.
