The 2020 tirage of DAOSA Natural Réserve is the fifth release of this wine, made with a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay following the principles of our Méthode Traditionnelle (Method ClassicTM ), the method used in the Champagne region of France.Perfectly ripe Pinot Noir fruit for sparkling was hand- harvested in early March 2018. The fruit was whole bunch pressed, retaining only 560L per tonne of fruit pressed. This gave very fresh acidity, clean juice and good primary fruit characters in the juice prior to fermentation. The juice was fermented cool in a stainless- steel tank. Once primary fermentation was completed, the wine went through malolactic fermentation in tank.Before tiraging, the wine was blended (assemblage) with some 2016 and 2017 Réserve Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, aged in old barrels without sulphur. The wine was then "tiraged" in February 2019 by the addition of yeast and sugar to the wine just before bottling in order to induce the secondary fermentation in bottle.The resultant sparkling wine was aged for 18 months in bottle before being disgorged with the addition of a low dosage of 7g/L in August 2020.

Expert review

Golden with a bronze hue and a nose of chamomile, brioche, ripe stonefruit, citrus zest, hints of marmalade and strawberry. On the palate it's precise and incredibly well balanced with deep fruit, sweet toast and zesty acidity. A very fine and pleasurable bead rises endlessly and kisses the tongue with freshness and confidence...this is simply stunning and is a brilliant value sparkling!
