  • Composition: PINOT NOIR
  • Rating: Composed of 74% Pinot Noir and 26% Chardonnay, the 2007 Blanc de Noirs exhibits more structure and body as well as a firmer, more muscular style. The Pinot Noir component takes away some of the charm and finesse of the Blancs de Blanc, but it adds more weight. This sparkler should drink well for several years. ”

  • Tasting Notes: Making a white wine from a red grape requires great care: handpicked fruit, early morning harvest, optimal fruit maturity, delicate pressing. A balance of bright flavors, crisp acidity, and minimal tannins is achieved. Three years of yeast contact knits all the elements together in a mature, toasty style.

    Blanc de Noirs presents layers of roasted almond, caramel, cherry and spice. The wine is especially appealing with lighter meats such as veal and pork tenderloin, caviar and smoked fish, risotto with chanterelles and vegetables, or cheese souffles.

  • Technical Notes: 74% Pinot Noir/26% Chardonnay). Barrel fermentation (30%) and malolactic of particular wine lots addrichness and body. Yeast contact in the bottle harmonizes all the elements in a mature, toasty style.
