Idee Fixe Premier Brut by Vasse Felix - Margaret River
Bottle size: 750ml
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.
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.
