With a richly developed character inspired by their favourite Champagnes, the No. 4 bottling is a blend of 59% Chardonnay and 41% Pinot Noir, produced on Méthode Traditionelle. This wine is sourced from cooler coastal regions of California, particularly the Santa Lucia Highlands, and is non-vintage, affording greater ability to achieve their desired style. Features soft bubbles and freshness that yields to creaminess from extended aging.
A blush gold with warm copper highlights, the No.4 features bright scents of flower blossoms, barely ripened white peach, kumquat and lemon/lime, with underlying notes of vanilla wafer, wet stone, and a hint of new leather. Entry on the palate is soft, then expands as kumquat and white peach carry over from the nose, along with dried apricot, lime, and the character of a passing ocean breeze. Extremely fine bubbles provide an elegant presence through to the finish, which trails off with fresh leather, lingering fruit, and subtly vibrant acidity that calls you back for another sip.
