'Ver Sacrum' stands for 'Scared Spring' in Latin and it is a reference to the late 1800’s Viennese youth movement that brought a new cultural and artistic revival, whilst taking into account the legacies of the past, Gustave Klimt was one its founding members.

Ver Sacrum is aged using cork closures for over six years. This traditional aging method allows for better maturation of the wine on the lees, giving a rich style of champagne with great authenticity.
The first fermentation is done slowly in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, this is followed by malolactic fermentation.
After racking, the bottle fermentation or ‘prise de mousse’ phase and aging are done in the cellar using traditional corks. Aging will last for a minimum of 72 months. After disgorgement a 6 g/l dosage is added to Ver Sacrum and the wine is left to rest in the cellar for a minimum of 6 months before release, leaving necessary time for the wine to absorb the dosage and find its balance.

Tasting Notes:

Color: Light golden yellow.
Nose: Generous and appealing, fresh citrus aromas with lemon and grapefruit, hints of peach and pear with some almond and hazelnut. With more time in the glass it shows seductive buttery notes with caramel, vanilla and marzipan, delicately toasted.
Palate: It is precise and bold at once, fruity with great minerality. A lemon butter cream flavor with hints of ginger dominate the palate. It is rich and pure at once.
Other: This is a great food pairing Champagne, it will go particularly well with lobster or any other shell fish, either raw or cooked, poultry, sweetbread or spicy Thai dishes. It will also pair with desserts made with dried fruits, hazelnuts or walnuts.
