Both complex and layered with lemon and lime citrus, green apple and lengthy acidity, our 2018 Extra Brut Sparkling Cuvée is ready for summer celebrations.
La Belle Promenade Vineyard | Chehalem Mountains AVA | 700 - 800’ Elevation | Northeastern & Southwestern Exposure | Volcanic Soils, Jory & Nekia | Planted to Mixed Pinot Noir Clones, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Aligoté, Grüner Veltliner & Gamay
This three varietal blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay sings of lime, Meyer lemon, wet stone and green apple. The warm and ripe 2018 vintage still holds on to its racy acidity - perfect for any seafood or cream based cuisine.
Dry Farmed Using Organic Principles La Belle Promenade Vineyard is comprised of 33 acres of vines planted in 2014. The vineyard is home to volcanic soils ranging in diversity from a thick layer of fractured basalt in our shallow rooted southwestern blocks and deeper volcanic Saum soils in the southeastern corner of the vineyard. The crops we harvest from La Belle Promenade produce characteristic floral notes that cling to acidity and tell the story of the orchard fruits that once grew here.
