Wine Description

(2007 Vintage) The aroma is a bracing blend of fresh golden apples, ripe pear, lemon, with a hint of melon and white blossoms. The Pinot Gris influence is more pronounced in the mouth, bringing a full, fleshy body and spicy accent to the crisp and deep structure of the Chardonnay. 6% of the blend went through malolactic fermentation for an extra layer of creaminess and nutty flavors. 36 months of yeast aging in the bottle brought out nuances of warm brioche, crème brulée, toasted nuts and vanilla beans. Already enjoyable now, the 2007 Blanc de Blancs will continue to age gracefully for many years.
