Schloss Vaux Sekt 2014 - Sept 2017 Decanter review
Schloss Vaux stand for uncompromising hand craftsmanship of sparkling wines made solely in the méthode traditionnelle (bottle fermentation).
The utmost care is taken to ensure top quality, from the grapes to the labels. Schloss VAUX accepts only first-class, specially prepared base wines for its individual sparkling creations. Their estate in Geisenheim and decades of personal contact with the winegrowers are crucial elements for ensuring unwavering consistency.
This sparkling blend is crafted for the contemporary connoisseur from a blend of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Riesling. Their "marriage" of the rich creamy finesse of the Pinot varietals with Riesling's bright and refreshing acidity produces a perpetually stunning taste sensation. This wine is fruity and rounded with attractive citrus fruit, grapey richness and a hint of melon.
