This is the 3 liter size; other formats available. 1 x 3 Liter Bottle 2015 Blanc de Blancs.

Blanc de Blancs (white from white) is the counterpart of Blanc de Noirs (white from black), made from the Chardonnay grape. Blanc de Blancs was the first wine we produced in 1965 and was America's first commercially produced Chardonnay-based sparkling wine.

This wine is dry and crisp with abundant flavors of lemon, apple, pear and pineapple. Small lots of malolactic and barrel-fermented wines are added for complexity. The wine is aged on the yeast lees in the bottle for about three years prior to disgorgement. With its bright fruit and crisp characters, this sparkling wine will maintain its freshness, structure and refined finish for many years following its initial release.

This is our oysters on the half shell sparkling wine, with a citrus-like crispness that make it ideal with a variety of fresh seafood. It is also delicious by itself as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to light poultry, cheese and vegetable courses.

Tasting notes

This wine has bright aromas of apple, tropical fruit and baked bread, which intermingle with hints of lemon blossom, vanilla wafer and baked pear. Candied citrus, green apple, apricot, and pineapple vibrate on the palate, which ends clean and refreshing with a quenching drive. - Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies

Reviews

91 Points
A quiet complement of green apple fruit sits beneath similarly constrained elements of toast and minerals in the fresh, nicely composed aromas of this comparatively refined sparkler, and, as is the Schramsberg norm, the wine is charged with plentiful, tiny bubbles that last and last. The clean and crisp, slightly austere qualities of the genre come through at every stop here with nary a hint of sweetness surfacing along the way. Over the years, this producer has shown an especially adept hand with Blanc de Blancs, and nothing has changed with this latest rendition. - Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (December 2018)

Polished and precise, with floral yeast roll and fresh ginger aromas accented by sleek lemon and lime flavors. - Wine Spectator (December 2018)
90 Points
Tiny bubbles keep rising long after this dry and crisp wine made from 100% Chardonnay is poured. It has a lemony flavor with almost salty, nutty accents and vivid acidity to keep it clean and balanced. - Wine Enthusiast (November 2018)
