    Winemaker's Notes:

    The most distinctive and elegant of the Iron Horse cuvées, made from 100% Chardonnay, this vintage is aged an average of 4 plus years on the yeast. It is ethereal - like drinking a cloud. It seems to effervesce away in your mouth and tastes like, among other flavors, a perfectly browned, lightly buttered slice of sourdough toast.

    A natural on Sunday morning with a beautiful, juicy melon. It is a sensational match with oysters, smoked salmon, caviar and pate. Ideal with roast chicken because it adds a clean, lemony flavor to the dish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2004 Blanc de Blancs is a 100% barrel-fermented Chardonnay that was aged five years on the yeast. It possesses a light straw color, notes of white currants, wheat thins, candied lemons, nectarines, and quince, well-formed, tiny bubbles, light to medium body, a delicate, finesse style, and terrific purity as well as length.

    This is an impressive group of sparkling wines from Joy Sterling and her team at Iron Horse.

    The Wine Advocate

    An exquisite, 100% Chardonnay. Drinks drier than most California bubblies, with firm acidity framing delicate flavors of lime rind, hazelnut, vanilla, yeast and smoke. Just lovely and ethereal now, and should hold for some years.
