    Winemaker's Notes:

    An abundant mousse and enticing aromas of delicate orange blossoms, ripe Gravenstein apple, vanilla and brioche announce this elegant Blanc de Blancs. Its full, creamy entry on the palate reveals complex flavors of ripe pear, lemon meringue and hints of white chocolate along with mineral notes that persist on a fresh, lasting, precisely balanced finish.

    A versatile accompaniment to a wide variety of appetizers from fresh oysters to toasted almonds, mussels to grilled prawns and, yes, caviar, this wine also matches superbly with a variety of cheeses like triple creams, Brie and Fontina.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Showing the lightness and bracing minerality that one expects of a Blanc de Blancs, this somewhat delicate, lightly toasty effort is on the green appley side in keeping with its 100% Chardonnay styling. Its bubbles are frothy and insistent, and its acidity keeps the wine austere even while its fruit makes it approachable. This balanced, wholly convincing effort would be right at home with tangy bites like fresh-shucked oysters.

    Opened both bottles at the Sat party for Christina. Enjoyed by all, served with fontina and brie cheeses. Will buy again
