Blanc de Noirs, NV
About the wine
Our Blanc de Noirs is predominantly made from hand-harvested Pinot Noir grapes, the hallmarks of which are a vibrant red fruit character. A portion of the Pinot Noir is left for 24 hours in contact with the grape skins, producing a light rosé color with enhanced Pinot Noir flavors of red berry, floral notes and light vanilla silkiness. Vin Gris is then added to this lightly Pinot Noir tinted blend to achieve the creamy palate and rosy hue dominant in this wine.

Outstanding with crab, Thai cuisine, roasted pork, quail, foie gras or semi-sweet deserts. Seasoning affinities include star anise, plum sauce and tarragon. Look to triple aged Gouda or hard aged cheeses with persimmons and hazelnuts for the cheese course.
