Galea is one of i Clivi’s two vineyard crus, from 70-year-old vines. Lovely aromas of ripe red cherry and plums with an underlayer of leather, earthy mushrooms, spice, and supple tannins – a perfect match for the rich beef wellington.
Pinela is an ancient, indigenous variety from the Vipava Valley in Slovenia, brought back to life by the Batič family. It spends five days on its skins and sees 24 months elevage in neutral Slovenian oak barrels. Notes of roasted fennel, apple, and pear skin. It is full-bodied and rich, with texture for days. The herbal qualities from the celeriac and earthy flavors from the black truffle will be a perfect match to the structured and textured wine.
A Blanc de Blancs with all fruit from the 1er Cru of Cuis, known for its bracing acidity and salty minerality. This disgorgement is no exception, showing bright, ripe citrus and crisp apple fruits on the palate with a bracing, high toned saline component and a long crisp finish.
