Description

Nordicity at its best

Those who have followed our journey since its early days, will have shared in the progress of this flagship wine.

Le Blanc evolved alongside our growing understanding of our Appalachian highlands’ terroir and now embodies our expertise of winemaking in northern regions. A true representation of the intrinsic characteristics of our blends, Le Blanc is stimulating and vibrantly fruity. The high proportion of frontenac grapes and the limited ageing on lees (of no less than 12 months), makes its pleasant acidity more pronounced than our in our other traditional method wines.

Québec wines are becoming increasingly popular thanks to their growing availability. It was important to us to make sure all could enjoy our wines by offering a special vintage at an affordable price. That is mainly why a selection of Bergeville vintages have been on the SAQ shelves since 2017. To align our offerings to the sparkling wines of the region, we first proposed a classic vintage with slightly higher dosage but still true to the Bergeville approach. In 2021, we followed our hearts (and our expertise) and lowered the dosage to 4 g/L. Le Blanc then proudly became the official sparkling wine of the 100th birthday of the SAQ, under the pseudonym L’Effervescent. This truly confirmed its preminence for gatherings and celebrations.

Le Blanc is our homage to nordicity and the quintessential sparkling wine for all celebrations.

Tasting & pairings

A jubilant sparkling wine, Le Blanc is ideal as an aperitif. Its pleasant acidity counterbalances heavier foods such as fried calamari, tempura or rich tapas. One of our favourite pairings is as an accompaniment to a grilled white fish served with a citrus sauce. 

Drinking temperature: 10°C

Can be stored and kept: up to 5 years

Notes from the winemaker

Exceptional growing conditions in 2021 and the absence of fall frost have allowed grapes to reach a maturity level never before attained, not even in 2012.  We harvested at 1300 degrees-day, when we normally harvest at 1150 degrees-day.  The challenge of this vintage was in the winery, finding the means to capture and concentrate the energy accumulated in the field, at a scale never experienced before!

When brought in from the fields, the grapes are pressed directly. Cold fermentation, on indigenous yeast and in stainless steel vats, preserve the wine’s freshness and fruity aroma. The forming of bubbles during the second fermentation takes place using neutral yeast from a Champagne biodynamic vineyard and organic beet sugar. Le Blanc then matures on lees for a minimum of 15 months and is subjected to neither fining nor filtering.
