Perpetual Reserve 

A perpetual reserve is different than a solera. To make it simple, you can imagine 2 barrels. 1 full and 1 empty. You transfer half of the full one in the empty, so both are at 50%. Then, you add 50% of the new harvest in each one. You’ll bottle one of the tank, and you keep the other one to star again the next year! Cedric uses this method to strike a masterful balance between the freshness of the new vintage with the complexity and depth only “old wines” can bring.

"This wine’s firm mineral toughness and potent fizz could use a decant to bring out its pale litchi flavors. The light tannins of red grapes deepen the vegetal savor, to match a cauliflower curry."
