2017 Blanc de Blancs
Pale gold with long-lasting effervescent bubbles in a glass, this vintage Blanc de Blancs is produced exclusively with Chardonnay grapes using the traditional method, also known as méthode champenoise in France. Production of sparkling wines with the traditional method involves allowing the secondary fermentation to occur in bottle, in contact with the yeast, which results in a high-quality sparkling wine possessing complexity and delightful mousse and brioche qualities. On the nose, the 2017 Blanc de Blancs displays notes of pineapple, white peach, apricot, chalk, lemon pith, and a hint of vanilla and honeydew melon. On the palate, this sparkling wine exhibits great minerality and qualities of crème fraiche, lime peel, green apple, quince, starfruit, and a touch of toasted almond on the finish.
