2021 Howard Park Jeté En Pointe
Sourced from a single parcel, head and shoulders above the rest, the Jeté En Pointe is an exploration of méthode traditionnelle that pushes past convention to encompass the unusual and extraordinary. Made from one single variety, Pinot Meunier, a noble Champagne grape often overlooked and blended away, this wine proves that balance, complexity and poise are not confined to the limits of custom.
Drawing on our family history in classical ballet, Jeté En Pointe has been crafted to reflect two elements of this elevated art form. While a jeté is a leap, en pointe refers to the ability to dance on the tips of one’s toes, a movement that requires a high degree of dedication and skill. The Jeté En Pointe represents a winemaking journey underpinned by precision, passion and expertise. The result is an exceptional sparkling wine to suit the curious and the connoisseur.
Lofty aromas of fresh raspberry, apple blossom and toasted brioche are interwoven between a fine and vibrant bead with umami undercurrents of mushroom ragout and flint adding complexity and depth. This méthode traditionnelle rolls across the palate expressing classical varietal notes of crushed strawberry, cranberry and hints of consommé. Elegant with textured minerality and refined acid tension, this wine is easily enjoyed in its exuberant youth or after some careful time in the cellar.
Enjoy as an apéritif or alongside seafood fare such as crab and chilli spaghetti with herbed pangrattato.
Enjoy this wine in its vibrant youth.
