2004 Blanc de Blancs Oak Reserve
This very limited edition of 2004 Blanc de Blancs Oak Reserve was crafted for sparkling aficionados who like a lot of power and depth in their wines.
Beautiful aromas of lemon custard, baked apple, white plum, and bitter orange with oak tones of vanilla, nutmeg, hazelnuts and roasted almonds. This wine has a very crisp and refreshing acidity, with a round, supple mouthfeel that lingers to a very long and powerful finish.Download Fact Sheet
The 2004 Blanc de Blancs Oak Reserve is a bold attempt to create a Chardonnay sparkling wine aged for 6 months in 100% old French Oak barrels (3 to 8 years old) before the secondary bottle fermentation. A first batch of this wine was originally disgorged after 3 years of yeast aging, and this new release has been kept for over 10 years on the yeast after secondary bottle fermentation, and disgorged as an Extra-Brut style with only 0.3% of residual sugar.Download Fact Sheet
The 2004 Blanc de Blancs Oak Reserve is a wonderful companion to densely flavored dishes, such as game poultry, spicy risotto, or rack of lamb. Try it also with a baked brie with fresh apricot coulis, or any cheese with fig and quince paste and roasted cashew nuts.Download Fact Sheet
