Product Overview

The non-vintage Scharffenberger Brut Excellence is made by the méthode traditionelle process, whereby the wines are individually bottle-fermented before being riddled and disgorged. The full malolactic style adds a vanilla cream character producing a round and full-bodied wine. After approximately two years on the lees, there are notes of freshly baked bread and pastry that enhances the more fruit-forward style of the wine. Finally, after several months in the bottle, the wine develops caramel and hazel complexors.

Varietal Composition: 60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir
Appellation: Mendocino County
Aging: Aged an average of two years on the yeast

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This enticing and supple wine starts with aromas of bread dough and toasted almonds. The palate brings flavors of both fresh and baked apple on a plush, softly sparkling texture." -JG, 12/31/18

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"Vibrant and steely, with lemon, apple, creamy and toasted spice flavors, leading to a spirited finish. Drink now. 20,000 cases made." -TF, 8/31/19
