The palate carries great weight and richness with a sensuous satin texture. The wine has concentrated stone fruit and citrus flavours over toasty spicy characters.

A packed aroma showing baked apple, lemon sherbet, sourdough, red berries, fresh cashews and toastiness. This is a sleek and stylish sparkling wine. Finely textured with baked crumble and crusty bread characters, layered on a tight, snappy palate with taut acidity, lovely concentration and a long finish.


Loess loam over fine gravels / Silt loam and alluvial gravel soils. Crafted from handpicked grapes, this blend showcases old-vine Mendoza clone Chardonnay, making up 40% of the wine. The remaining blend features low-yield, Burgundy clone Pinot Noir 115.

The LV Methode Traditionelle has been made very much by following the traditional winemaking wisdom of the Champagne region. Grapes were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed on a gentle Champagne press cycle, with only the first 500 litres per tonne used. The base wines underwent 100% malolactic fermentation, coinoculated in the primary ferment. Blending trials determined the ideal proportions of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and prior vintage wines. The tirage bottling was in Spring.These bottles then lay on their sides, untouched, until disgorging around 2.5 years later, allowing the yeast autolysis to add complexity and texture to the wine. The bottles were disgorged in late December 2022. Dosage was 9 g/L.
