THE GOOD GUYS MUSE
A refined, light straw colour with a fine beady mousse. Delicate yeasty tones, layered with green lime zest, citrus and brioche. Enlivened with a firm, well integrated mousse and a persistent bead. Great vibrant mouth-feel with toasty notes, citrus, honey and tropical nuances with a bright long lingering finish.

The 2013 vintage is a brilliant follow-on from the maiden 2012 release. The current vintage offers a precise balance of ripe, vivid fruit expression and restrained elegance. The Chardonnay grapes were hand-picked, each bunch undergoing a thorough and stringent selection process. After whole- bunch pressing and the separating of the cuvée from the taille, the clear juice was fermented in stainless steel, a small portion undergoing fermentation in traditional barrels from Tonnellerie Artisanale de Champagne. After the initial fermentation the wine was prepared for secondary fermentation in the bottle. Here the wine was allowed to live on the lees for six years before the sediment was removed through the traditional process of remuage and dégorgement. The bottles were then corked and laid down for a further six months cork maturation.
