BACKGROUND
Pete Stolpman and Rajat Parr’s Esoteric Partnership “Combe” means a “small sheltered valley within a vineyard” in French.

When Rajat Parr began making Sandhi Chardonnay alongside Stolpman in the Lompoc Wine Ghetto back in 2010, he immediately started a campaign to plant Trousseau on Stolpman’s Ballard Canyon Limestone soils.  Vignerons in Jura seek out Limestone for their Trousseau plantings, and Rajat theorized that Trousseau, a varietal that often has difficulty achieving ripeness, would flourish in the sunny, arid Ballard Canyon wind tunnel.

SENSORY
Vibrant, glowing pink and peach hue.  Fine but robust bubble.  Fresh tropical fruits and high-toned, energetic red fruit.  Steely and lean, yet chalky with a subtle, lingering richness.  Buzzy, fizzy splendor from the mid-palate through to long after swallowing.  More coating with bigger fruit than ever before.  A full, fleshy sparkling wine, the best Combe Pet’nat to date.  Berry parfait in a glass!
