Idée Fixe. Noun, [ee-dey feeks], French. A fixed idea. Obsession.  Making méthode traditionnelle wines has been a quiet obsession of Vasse Felix for decades. This fixation led to the serendipitous discovery of a mysterious clone of Chardonnay, grown in the deep south of Margaret River. Here, the calcareous soils overlay limestone and the Southern Ocean brings persistent cloud and biting cold winds. Margaret River Blanc de Blancs is our idée fixe.

Idée Fixe is crafted from the premium, free-run cuvée of handpicked Chardonnay, and meticulous méthode traditionnelle winemaking. Elegant in form, it bursts with crisp apple, vibrant lemon pith, citrus blossom, almond meal and nougat. Focussed minerality and a fine, invigorating mousse create a delicious palate where fruit purity and savoury complexity achieve delightful harmony.

Producers notes

Birthed by Vasse Felix, but all new.  A decades-long fixation,  then a serendipitous discovery.  In the deep south of Margaret River;  Southern Ocean, calcareous soils, biting cold.  Méthode Traditionnelle. Chardonnay.  From a dedicated sparkling house.  Refined, expressive, distinctive.

An elegant, expressive and distinct Margaret River Blanc de Blancs made at a new dedicated sparkling house in the region’s south.

Idée Fixe Premier Brut is crafted from house-grown Chardonnay, handpicked
from a specialty vineyard in Karridale. Calcareous soils, persistent cloud and biting cold winds from the Southern Ocean are favoured by our unique clones of Chardonnay. Heritage at Vasse Felix provides an intimate understanding of Chardonnay growing and winemaking.

Share our decades-long fixation in its new era, as Idée Fixe Premier Brut.

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes. For estimated delivery times and further information see here. If you have any additional questions, please email us on sales@wineexperience.com.au or call us on 1300 55 44 35
