2018 Blanc de Blancs

Great winemakers love the opportunity to try something new, and are particularly captivated by experiments with promising results. One such experiment has resulted in this exclusive California sparkling wine.

Tasting Notes

Our Blanc de Blancs has quickly become a club favorite. On the nose, playful aromas of golden apple, lychee, lemon zest, and orange blossom are underpinned by a flinty minerality. The palate reveals a serious wine with focused fruit and plenty of structure; seamless flavors of grilled lemon, brioche, honeydew, and shortbread flow long on bright acidity. Beautifully integrated, fresh and lively, this wine will continue to evolve over the next several years.
