Crafting single-vintage, single-variety sparkling wine with no dosage is an endeavor that leaves no room for error. A winemaker must place absolute trust in the vineyard and the growers who manage it. Hidden within the West Sonoma Coast, Lucky Well Vineyard is uniquely positioned for terroir-driven sparkling wine. It sits above the fog line at 1,000 feet, encouraging optimal acid retention and flavor development. The Hudson clone farmed there traces its roots several decades back to France, and is well known for producing brisk wines at a low Brix level. Grand Cru Chablis-style Chardonnay from Lucky Well has already proven pivotal to the Texture portfolio for years, and Erich Bradley is intimately familiar with the vineyard’s potential for a Champagne-caliber companion. With these elements in place, Texture’s inaugural Blanc de Blancs is an exquisitely measured highlight of the 2020 vintage – the only sparkling wine made from Lucky Well. Bracing and balanced in Méthode Traditionnelle style, it offers a glimpse of Champagne from the coastal hills of Sonoma.
