This is Gruet's tete de cuvee. Aged en tirage for six years, it shows a nose of pear tart and brioche. It's boldly flavored with tangy acidity and remains fresh despite its age. The fruit is ripe and expressive, and the wine is very much New World in style. This is not a sipping wine; it definitely needs a nice roast chicken or even pork roast to show its best. Made from free-run juice of its estate's oldest Chardonnay vines.
