2012 Blanc De Blancs Prestige

Battenfeld Spanier Blanc de Blancs Sekt Prestige is made from our plots of Chardonnay located in Hohen-Sülzen. The climate here is perfect to grow Chardonnay in a very fresh and elegant style. First to be harvested, these grapes have to remain low in sugar and high in acidity in order to evolve nicely along the years.

The whole bunches are gently pressed in order to start the vinification of this premium traditional method. The juice is then fermented in French oak tonneaux (second & third use) and stay until June on its fine lees.

After racking the wine, it is bottled with a capsule in order to start the second fermentation. Finally, after 9 years on its lees, our Blanc de Blancs Sekt Prestige
2012 was disgorged.

The 2012 vintage is firm and deep. It shows yeasty character traduced by a nutty, citric tart and brioche aroma, along with delicate floral and stone fruit nuances.

The flavours are clear and the wine is dry. Despite a long time on the lees, it is juicy with ripe and dry fruits, creamy and smoky taste. Let it breathe to show complex flavours of candy, patisserie and a finely spicy finish
