2017 Blanc de Blancs

2017 Blanc de Blancs

In Champagne, Blanc de Blancs is considered the most challenging to make yet the most coveted. In California, Blanc de Blancs is known as one of the most versatile sparkling wines due to its lively acidity. This acidity comes from using only Chardonnay, hence the “white of white” translation of its name.

Tasting Notes

This crisp Blanc de Blancs opens with aromas of green apple, apricot, and Valencia orange.

Subtle apple notes and a slightly creamy finish complement flavors of Bartlett pear.

Food Pairings

The bright citrus flavor on the mid-palate with a slight toasty finish is a match for grilled chicken glazed with orange and ginger. For the dessert course, try Meyer lemon mousse with ripe raspberries. Add toasted Marcona almonds and dried mango to a cheese board, along with triple cream cheeses such as cambozola, Brie, or La Tur.

The spring of 2017 brought record rainfall to break the six year drought parching California. The late rains provided plenty of water to the vines for a vigorous start to the growing season. Throughout the growing season hot weather kept the grapes ripening quickly, but plenty of vegetation from strong spring growth provided some protection from the heat. Harvest began about 10 days earlier than average. A couple of heat spikes during harvest created some anxiety, but we had the grapes harvested before the peak of the heat. Fortunately we were able to pick all of the grapes at their optimum ripeness to produce outstanding wines from the vintage.
