Disgorging a wine involves removing the sediment of dead yeast cells before the dosage is added. The 2004 Brut LD (Late Disgorged) was aged for more than eight years before disgorging, resulting in a more complex, creamier wine. Composed of equal parts Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, it displays apple and pear aromas, lemon and lime flavors and a dry mouthfeel.
