Our J Vineyards & Winery 2011 Vintage Brut opens with aromas of honeysuckle and citrus, a tangy preview of this elegant and refined sparkling wine. On the palate, notes of Meyer lemon preserves, ripe peach and green apple blend with hints of earthiness and sea spray. Focused throughout, the delicate Vintage Brut finishes with touch of tangerine zest. Pair this bubbly with pan-seared black cod with cremini mushroom escabeche, fresh west coast oysters on the half-shell with a classic mignonette or high-quality chèvre topped with local honey.

All of the grapes were hand-harvested into small quarter-ton bins and placed as whole clusters, without destemming, into our special French Coquard press for a gentle pressing. The juice was fermented in stainless steel, which allowed us to highlight aromatics, and kept separate until the final blending decision, which occurred in March 2012.
