2003 Brut LD
LD Stands for Late Disgorged, meaning aged longer, which makes the wine richer and creamier. Made only in exceptional vintages, the blend is composed of our favorite lots of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from that year. We use all cuvée or free run juice. Stylistically, this bubbly has an exciting, underlying hint of youthfulness that belies the wine’s age. This is Iron Horse's "tête de cuvée", our top of the line.
Food PairingBest matched with "earthy" foods such as mushrooms, truffles, foie gras, sweet breads and even butternut and other winter squashes.
Wine Enthusiast and Wine & Spirits have both awarded this release 93 points. The 2002 vintage earned 93 points in Robert Parker' Wine Advocate. That vintage was named the sole American Sparkling wine in Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Wines of the Year with a 96 point rating and described as "deliriously delicious." It was also awarded 90 points by Wine & Spirits and 90 points Wine Spectator.
