A pale lemon colour and a delicate mousse. It exudes freshness and pure fruit on the bouquet, showing rich ample and creamy notes with a phenolic mineral side of Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay to great effect. Moreover it has all the elements that are so often missing in the new wave of California sparking wines namely a fine mousse good mid-palate depth and a long finish.

Racines is a collaboration led by Étienne de Montille and Brian Sieve of Burgundy and Rodolphe Péters of Champagne. Étienne and Brian had been on an exploratory trip to California and Oregon in search of a place where they could put down roots for a initial project beyond of France. In the Santa Rita Hills, they found the precision and finesse they were looking for. A year later Rodolphe Péters, with a similar intent, joined to create a range of sparkling wines, also from the Santa Rita Hills. The team came together to join their individual experiences in hand-crafting wines of purity and transparency to create a range of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the cool climate of the Sta. Rita Hills in California. Racines represents the coming together of all that is wondrous about Burgundy, Champagne and California.
