Cuvée 58, en tirage March 2002; degorgement October 2002; 2940 bottles produced. The Blanc de Blanc is Mawby's most delicate traditional method sparkling wine. It's a multi-vintage blend produced from chardonnay (85%) and pinot gris (15%). The grapes are hand-harvested and whole-bunch pressed. This cuvée gets only the initial, gently pressed juice (the harder pressed juice, which contains more phenols, tannins and acids, is reserved for table wine). After fermentation, the wines are blended with older, reserve wines before undergoing secondary fermentation in bottle, and then aged en tirage before disgorging. Retails ex cave at US$18 (2005 price).
