Our 2015 Vintage Blanc de Blanc has aromas of flaky, buttery pie crust, caramelized apples and touches of delicate lemon blossom and brioche. The flavors are lemon tart with hints of pear. The finish has a touch of nutty baked bread and a delicate, balanced acidity.
The Blanc de Blanc was created using the Méthode Champenoise, which is the traditional method of making Champagne and other sparkling wines.
The grapes were hand harvested at daybreak and gently whole cluster pressed to a stainless steel tank. The juice was inoculated using Quartz Yeast, which is a traditional Champagne yeast and left to ferment for 26 days at very cold temperatures. After fermentation and settling, the wine was bottled with a small amount of yeast and sugar to induce secondary fermentation. This process took about 20 months. After this, the bottles were riddled to bring the lees and sediment to the neck of the bottle. The necks were then frozen and the lees were disgorged from the bottles. The bottles were then topped up and a “dosage” was added and the final corks and wire hoods were put into place.
Food Pairing Notes
This would pair beautifully with Oysters Rockefeller or even a delicious roast chicken with lemony potatoes.
