2015 Lytle-Barnett Brut

Lytle-Barnett Vintage Brut is our flagship wine.  It’s the one that we really feel that most people are drawn to when they think about the Champagne Category.  Vintage Brut is the centerpiece to the Lytle-Barnett lineup

The bubbles are made in the vintage methode champenoise tradition. Handpicked in the Willamette Valley then gently pressed whole cluster in a pneumatic press.  The Pinot Noir Cuvee is kept separate and fermented in stainless and oak barrels.  We bottle early in summer and leave it to age for a minimum of 3 years sur latte (on their sides).  At disgorge and dosage we don’t think the wine needs a lot of sugar so only add about 2-3 grams per liter.  The wine then rests for another 3 months before release.

With undertones of baking spice with lemon curd, white flower and delicate wild red fruits.  The ethereal quality of the bubbles brings grace to the swirling flowers in the glass.  The finish closes on a mix of fruit and yeast-derived flavors punctuated by dry, crisp acidity.

2016 Lytle-Barnett Brut Rose

The beauty of the Brut Rosé is that we just have the skin contact for a brief period of time with the wine. It creates a beautiful color hue. We aim to get something that is very soft, very pink, but very bright.

The bubbles are made in the vintage méthode champenoise tradition. Hand picked in the Willamette Valley then gently pressed whole cluster in a pneumatic press. The pinot noir cuveé is kept separate and fermented in stainless and oak barrels. We bottle in early summer and leave it to age for a minimum of 3 years sur latte (on their sides). At disgorge and dosage we don’t think the wine needs a lot of sugar so we only add about 2-3 grams per liter. The wine then rests for another 3 months before release.

Light in its hue, the Brut Rosé captures the essence of the red fruit within. Strawberry and raspberry notes mingle overtly with bread notes and light floral tones. The tiny bubbles carry these notes with clean acidity at the end of a long stylish finish.

2017 Lytle-Barnett Blanc de Noirs

This pale golden straw colored wine presents with a complex nose layered with a delicate flinty minerality , a subtle wet stone note, and mingled notes of tangerine, corn silk, vanilla cream and teak. The palate is alive with intense bubbles carrying primary flavors of lemon custard, quince paste, verbena, and white tea. As the palate opens, more yeast derived notes of briocche and golden delicious apple present. This is underpinned by a pervasive salinity tying together the palate. As the wine finishes on a focused acidity, a clean and elegant yeast note persists. 

Chardonnay grapes were hand harvested from two different vineyards in the Willamette Valley. They were chilled overnight to allow for a gentle press cycle the next day in a traditional pneumatic press. The different blocks of Clone 76 and Clone 352 Chardonnay were vinified separately in a mix of traditional French oak barrels, stainless steel barrels, and stainless steel tank to develop depth and complexity of flavors while retaining an exacting freshness. The different vessels allowing different aspects of the fruit's flavor profile to emerge over the course of the primary fermentation and subsequent elevage creating a more dynamic and complex end result than a singular fermentation vessel would. The wine was bottled in the spring of 2017 and matured sur la'e (on its lees) until disgorging during the winter of 2020. Upon disgorgement, it was decided a small dose of 3.5 g/L would bring perfect balance and mid-palate weight to the youthful intensity of the wine. The wine was aged on cork for an additional 6 months after disgorgement before its release to allow the dosage to integrate and the wine to relax.
