Madame Elke Vintage Brut Sparkling Wine
For more than two decades, the Elke family has been growing grapes to be made into sparkling wine by Mumm and Roederer Estate, and for years we have also made our own non-vintage Brut. But until now, we have not done a vintage sparkling wine. So, at long last, here is our first-ever release of a vintage Brut. In honor of Mary Elke and her years of work in the vineyard and winery, we call this beautiful methode traditionelle sparkling wine the "Madame Elke". This 2011 vintage Brut is made in the classic French style: 52% Chardonnay and 48% Pinot Noir. It pairs perfectly with friends and family. Whatever you do, don’t save it for special occasions or you’ll miss out on an everyday wine that just happens to sparkle. Cheers!
