2014 Blanc de Noirs (1 x 750 ml)
Making a white wine from a red grape requires great care – hand-picked fruit, early morning harvest, optimal fruit maturity and delicate pressing. A balance of bright flavors, crisp acidity and minimal tannins is achieved. Barrel and malolactic fermentation of particular wine lots add richness and body. Yeast contact in the bottle harmonizes all the elements together in a mature, toasty style. The youthful fruit character of the wine will develop and soften with additional age in the bottle. With proper storage, this sparkling wine will be delicious for many years, even a couple of decades to come.
This Blanc de Noirs expresses generous aromas of red apple, apricot, and candied lemon, which gradually layer with fragrances of graham cracker and sourdough bread. Lush flavors coat the palate with cantaloupe, peach, and an added hint of vanilla and marzipan. The crisp acidity gives way to a floral, honeyed finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies
A crisp texture and rather full body carry subtle spice and lean dry fruit flavors in this nicely reserved and complex wine. Apple skin, lemon zest and hints of toasted almond carry the palate and linger on the finish.- Wine Enthusiast (November 2018)
Crisp and luscious, with expressive cherry, Meyer lemon and yeast roll accents that linger on a refreshing finish.- Wine Spectator (December 2018)
