LA CUVÉE CONCORDE

 

La Cuvée Concorde (The Harmony Blend) is an evolving project aimed at highlighting the art of blending. The objective is to find barrels of significant character and depth and blend them into a product where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Blend 1 consists of 3 favorite barrels of 2016. It starts with an experimental saison base aged in French Oak CA Chardonnay barrels for 7 months. With the addition of 1 year white wine barrel aged Saison Rustique, this foundation is enhanced with elements of cherry pie, deep rustic funk, apricot, and white wine. An additional 5 months of refermentation in the bottle contributes to the complexity and gentle nuances found in this harmonious blend.
