Description

"...a gorgeous wine in this range of sparklers from Fesstivity. Orchard fruit, spice and light, toasty notes all flesh out in a resonant, super-expressive sparkling wine..." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous 

"...offers a richer, broader, more textured style as well as classy notes of brioche, honeyed orchard fruits, and toasted almond aromas and flavors. Nicely balanced, with a racy mousse and bright acidity, it's another terrific sparkling wine from this estate that should keep nicely for 2-4 years." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

"Clean lines of nectarine, honeysuckle, plumeria and baked apple pull the nose into this bubbly. The palate offers baked bread flavors alongside lemon skin and light peach, served atop a mellow mousse." ~ Wine Enthusiast 

The 2017 Fesstivity Brut Cuvee is a complex sparkling blend comprised of roughly 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay spending an extended time en tirage to bring out its unique characteristics.  You won't miss fine persistent bubbles floating to the top of your flute in a pale straw background. Light and flowery on the nose with a palate dominated by lemon cream, pear, roasted cashew and rounded out by a hint of nectarine.
