Wine Description

(From 2007 Vintage) Vintage Blanc de Blancs is only made in stellar years when wine making conditions are close to perfect. 2007 was a ripe, luxurious vintage that made for a rich and perfectly balanced sparkling wine. Assertive almond and brioche aromas ready the palate for bright apple flavors that remain through the finish. It’s lively and has plenty of room for additional aging.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 1999 Vintage) The Blanc de Blancs offers abundant aromas and flavors recalling sweet apples, pears and citrus. The four years of aging has contributed a pronounced classic toastiness with accents of roasted almonds and minerals. The palate is creamy and long, and the style is elegant, dry and crisp, with great complexity. Winemaker's Note: Only 1,000 cases produced, selected from the best chardonnay of the harvest. It tastes like French champagne from the Cote des Blancs, supremely elegant, sophisticated long finish and nice acidity.
