A new addition to the Daniel Le Brun range and one we think presents as the "Best Buy" New Zealand bubbly around at the moment. It has been crafted by winemaker Jane De Witt, who has used her extensive knowledge and experience of sparkling wines to bring this masterful blend together. It is made in the traditional bottle fermented method, with an extended 5 year period on lees – this creates finesse and completeness.
It is gorgeous to drink, with an inviting bright lemon gold colour. The bubbles are fine and persistent, reflecting that extended time on lees before disgorging and bottling. It tastes of lemon, white flowers, a hint of brioche. It is delicate, beautifully balanced, yet powerful and persistent.
Winery notes (NV)
"A blend of three exceptional cuvées and vintages, Daniel Le Brun Cuvée Speciale has been crafted using the three classic Champagne varietals, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. This Cuvée Speciale has undergone a secondary fermentation in bottle and is aged on lees for an extended maturation of at least 5 years before being released. The harmony of beautifully balanced fruit flavours and biscuity notes are enhanced by the extra time on lees, providing a creamy toasty complexity."
