JANCIS ROBINSON (UK)

Mid straw with fine beads rising to the surface. Fresh, pure citrus and pear fruit on the nose. Great freshness and gorgeus lemony energy on the palate. Long lasting, fresh and, no other word for this, dynamic palate. Gorgeous, long and giving champagne a run for its money. That is very rare in Franciacorta. Lots of potential.

WINE SPECTATOR

This bursts with ripe pineapple and tangerine fruit, followed by almond skin and honeycomb notes, with a rich streak of racy salinity. Lacy in texture and well-balanced, with a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2024. 8,000 cases made, 700 cases imported.

Complex, essential

Dedicated to the most attentive connoisseurs, it is a vintage with zero dosage that, when paired, enhances complex first courses and filled fresh pasta, main courses of steamed fish, meat dishes and cheeses, even mature ones.

GRAPES

Chardonnay (70%) and Pinot Noir (30%), grown in the estate vineyards of Arzelle, Rovere, San Carlo, and Ragnoli, all planted to a high density of 10,000 vines/ hectare.

 

YIELD

9,000 kg of grapes/hectare, with a yield in must of 30%, equivalent to 3,600 bottles/hectare.

 

VINIFICATION

The whole clusters are pressed gently and slowly, yielding various fractions of must. Fermentation is in steel, then the finest lots mature sur lie in oak barrels for 6 months.

 

MATURATION

In the spring following the harvest, the cuvée is assembled, with 100% of the wine of that harvest. The blend re-ferments in the final bottle and matures sur lie a minimum of 5 years, followed by a further 6 months’ bottle-ageing after disgorging.

 

STYLE

Zero dosage.

 

SIZES AVAILABLE

750ml standard bottle and 1.5 l. magnum.

 

SENSORY CHARACTERISTICS: APPEARANCE

Abundant, creamy mousse; sinuous, slender bead; and subtle, long-lingering crown at the rim.

 

SENSORY CHARACTERISTICS: COLOUR

Peach-blossom pink, shot through with coral.

 

SENSORY CHARACTERISTICS: BOUQUET

Multi-layered and elegant, with crisp-edged apricot, yellow peach, and candied citrus that meld into fresh-baked pan brioche.

 

SENSORY CHARACTERISTICS: PALATE

A vibrant acidity lends support to a well-sculpted, emphatic structure, and an energy-laden, richly-flavoured finish provides a tangy, sensory tautness.

 

PAIRINGS

It highlights the flavours of elaborate first courses and stuffed pasta, of stews and meat- based dishes in general, and even aged cheeses.

 

SERVING TEMPERATURE

10-12 °C.
