2019 Blanc de Noir

Produced in limited quantities using the intricate méthode traditionnelle process, our Blanc de Noir is a white sparkling wine made from “black” Pinot Noir grapes. Aged a minimum of three years on the lees, our Blanc de Noir embodies fruity fleshiness with full body and texture. A favorite among many since our first vintage in 1991 when we were one of the first domestic producers to experiment with a Blanc de Noir, this wine is available exclusively at the winery.

Tasting Notes

Our 2019 Blanc de Noir opens up with wonderful notes of white flower, peach, white cherry, and lime zest. Soft, round, and thought provoking, this wine presents a generous mousse. The palate continues to entice with pear accompanied by flavors of bergamot tea, lemon, lychee, and a hint of graham cracker. There is a deep complexity that is rich and creamy due to the extended aging.

Food Pairings

We suggest enjoying this wine with red snapper sashimi, roasted duck, or lemon ricotta pasta with pine nuts. This wine is well balanced between both the fruity and floral notes pair nicely with a fruit tart.
