Blanc de Blancs

2013 Carneros

$55

Our signature sparkling wine, the Blanc de Blancs is hand-crafted from 100% estate-grown Chardonnay. This wine aged on the yeast lees in the bottle for three years and was hand riddled before disgorgement. It has a beautiful bouquet marked by floral and citrus notes. The palate is fresh and vibrant, with a rich structure and creaminess that brings balance and intensity to the flavors. The refined finish shows remarkable length with excellent minerality and effervescent fruit that lingers.

"Lovely, beautifully poised and genuinely elegant example of the genre wherein elements of fresh citrus and cream are accented with a touch of toasted brioche. Its wonderfully sustained mousse is fine and frothy, and, if tipping the scales to dryness, the wine is never in any way austere and will make lovely drinking on its own or with appropriately delicate foods."

Our sparkling wines are sourced from vineyards in Carneros, undergoing a special process that takes about five years from vineyard to consumer. With four styles, Sparkling is the smallest of our collections and can be found in our tasting room, through our web store, as part of our wine club, and by very few select retailers.
