Blanc De Noirs Reserve

sparkling
$40.00

Mouth-filling mousse with both full-bodied weight and precise acid driven focus. Immediately lush and toasty with brioche and lemon rind, enveloping some hazelnut and marzipan in the background. Lemon and white cranberry dominate the fruit spectrum but fennel seed and a gravelly minerality play on the focused finish.

The production of sparkling blanc de noirs is a fascinating master class in power, weight and balance. As always, Pinot Noir brings its full-bodied, silky texture to the table. An early pick date, with higher natural acidity, provides a linear spine to support the vibrant structure. Traditional second ferment in bottle and 22 months on lees develops more complexities along with autolytic aromatics. We trialed dosage and discovered a balance between acidity and the lush texture at 3g/L.

Fresh shucked oysters, steamed mussels, soft and bloomy rind cheeses or harder cave aged cheeses with pickled things. And yes, actually potato chips or popcorn. No special occasion required.
