2001 Blanc de Blancs Late Disgorged (1 x 750 ml)
With nearly ten years of contact on the yeast, in the bottle, in our historic Diamond Mountain Caves, this sparkling wine has developed exquisite richness, depth and complexity. Extensive aging "en tirage" enables savory, nutty and seasoned attributes to evolve with fruitful caramelization, density and creaminess on the palate. With great enthusiasm, we present this one-of-a-kind offering of our flagship Blanc de Blancs, blended from our select range of Chardonnay vineyards in California's North Coast. Throughout 2012, we will be releasing this wine in 750-mL, 1.5-L, and 3-L formats, providing a wide range of options with which to celebrate this special year in our history.
The 2001 Blanc de Blancs LD exhibits developed aromas of fresh from the oven pie dough, Granny Smith apple, and dried pineapple. The sparkling wine’s fruitful nature is complemented by hints of roasted almond, cinnamon sugar toast, and holiday spice. On first taste, the wine bursts with generous, sweet grapefruit and vibrant acidity. On the mid-palate, fresh-baked white peach and pear flavors provide textural viscosity. The finish delivers the classic minerality and mouthwatering drive, characteristic of our Blancs style.- Winemakers Keith Hock and Hugh Davies
