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.
The 2019 growing season started with saturated soils thanks to abundant winter and spring rains. Cooler weather throughout the summer meant plenty of time for flavors and aromatics to develop, and an early heat spike in August helped push the ample crop of grapes to full maturity, with a harvest start date of August 15. The continuing heat of August resulted in a fast and furious sparkling harvest of 22 days. The wines that resulted have a focused elegance on the palate that finishes with bright acidity.
Food Pairing Notes
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.
