We are once again very grateful that the well-respected San Francisco Chronicle wine editor, Esther Mobley, has published a new article about En Tirage. This one is to announce our recently disgorged and released 2010 vintage, and it’s entitled, “Sonoma’s most elusive sparkling wine is back.”
We loved working with her when she interviewed us last year to research her earlier article about our 1990 and 1992 vintages, ‘The hunt for Don Baumhefner and his elusive Chateau Beaux Hauts bubbly.” While she was here, we invited her to sabre open the bottle we were going to taste together, and she performed that duty admirably.
In her new article, Esther gives her tasting impressions of both the 2010 Blanc de Blancs and 2010 Blanc de Noirs, compares them with the 1990 and 1992 vintages, and lists the restaurants and stores where you can currently purchase En Tirage. She also hints at what releases might be in the future for En Tirage.
“Sonoma’s most elusive sparkling wine, En Tirage, is back.” — Esther Mobley, SF Chronicle
