A vibrant, balanced sparkling chardonnay marked by its dryness and notes of fresh fruit. Absolutely wonderful as a sipper or a sophisticated, bubbly mixer.
After running a wine bar in Montreal for two years, Patrick Piuze moved to Burgundy in 2000 and for his first autumn there he spent the harvest with Olivier Leflaive (a pioneer in the realm of bio-dynamic viniculture) in Puligny-Montrachet. Shortly after, Piuze was entrusted with the vinification of Laflaive’s new Chablis project and Patrick spent four years there honing his skills as a winemaker.
Forging out on his own, he released his first wines in 2008. He purchases all his fruit (never must or juice) and focuses on sourcing grapes from old-vines situated in prime locations. Interestingly, these vineyards are available because their location on the slopes makes them more difficult to work and impossible to machine harvest. This suits Piuze since he chooses to harvest every vineyard by hand anyway, even at the Petit Chablis and Village level.
