Pas Dosé Brut Corteaura
|Grapes||Pinot Noir, Chardonnay|
Enticing aromas of toast, butter, ripe apple, citrus and nut. The palate is pure and crisp with complex layered, citrus, nut, bread and malt notes, all finished off with a brisk bright acidity that gives great length. L&S (Oct 2016)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Having reviewed the great-value Brut made by L&S's impressive Franciacorta producer Corteaura late last year, here's an equally well-priced example of Italy's real answer to Champagne, a brisk, super-dry blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with lovely incisive acidity and plenty of fresh orchard fruit and baked bread flavour.

Federico Fossati, the “Soul of Corte Aura”, is not yet 40 but already taking on a second career - with great results!. He left his homeland of the Veneto and a career in finance to set up in Lombardy. He saw his future in Adro, Franciacorta. Prime growing grounds for classic, high quality fruit, perfect for Franciacorta. The towns emblem is made up of three bunches of grapes - this is what they do there!
We are delighted to be working with the team here - it is so refreshing to have people making great Sparkling wine - who really understand that as it is not labelled Champagne - there is work to be done to raise the profile of Franciacorta and they know prices must be part of the allure - these represent seriously good value and we are so pleased to be listing the Brut and the fantastic Pas Dosé cuvée - perfect adverts for what is achievable here in this historic region - with passion, attention to detail and a long-term plan.
They own many of the own vineyards as well as buying in grapes from trusted growers and although still quite young are becoming seriously respected in the area.
