"The sparkling 2014 Taïka was produced by the ancestral method of finishing the fermentation in bottle, what many people now call pet-nat, after a partial fermentation in oak barrels and was kept with lees. It's a blend of 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Semillon picked at 12% potential alcohol, and no sugar was added at any point of the process. This is rounder than the 2013 and has full flavors from properly ripened grapes. It's bone-dry, with high acidity and extremely low pH. It's aromatic but doesn't have the typical notes of the Sauvignon Blanc. This feels every bit as good as the traditional or Champenois method of sparkling wines, and it has very integrated and small bubbles that give texture. It has finesse and nuance and is balanced, with youth and energy to continue developing in bottle. It has a salty finish. This is the house style: pure, elegant, balanced, clean and crystalline whites. It was kept in bottle for six years. This is an ancestral sparkling that is unique. It should develop nicely and for a very long time. 3,700 bottles produced. It was disgorged in February 2020."
