Blanc de Blancs

2016 Carneros


Our signature sparkling, the 2016 Blanc de Blancs displays wonderful finesse, lightness, and elegance. A classic bouquet of lemon peel, sliced green apple, and fresh ginger persist to a pristinely fresh palate. Delicate beads of bubbles intermingle with hints of honeyed nuts cut by crystalline acidity that converge with a long, tangy finish.

“Aged five years on the lees, this is a beautiful vintage bubbly with a nose of creamy almond, lemon, and minerals. Soft, elegant mousse with persistent bubbles; fresh green apple appears on the palate before the long finish.”

Somm Journal

"This wine leaps from the glass with notes of brioche, honeyed peaches, and beeswax, followed by touches of cashews and apple butter. The palate is sophisticated, crisp, and finely-knit with tiny, persistent bubbles and a persistent, zesty finish."

A light coral pink in the glass, this elegant bottling shows rose petals, fresh raspberries, and a hint of lime zest on the soft and welcoming nose. The lush palate offers strawberries laced with citrus fruit and a touch of almonds that convenes in a refreshing minerality that lingers.
