"Vollereaux Cuvée Marguerite is aged sur-lie for seven years, more than twice the time required by appellation rules. The grapes undergo 100% malolactic fermentation. 2008 was the perfect year to create the ninth edition of our Cuvée Marguerite. Harvest began on September 17th after a long winter & humid spring; the sunshine in July & early September resulted in perfectly matured grapes. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were in excellent condition.

ColourLight straw with green reflections and consistent intense, fine bubbles.
NoseHas great finesse, with aromas of lime mixed with fine floral notes like honeysuckle and white fruits like pear juice and white peach.
PalateFresh and soft. Smoke and vanilla notes show a racy maturity in the 2011 vintage, balanced by a vivacity to the palate from the effervescence."
