This special edition of our award-winning "white of whites", blooms with a gorgeous green apple citrus and vanilla bouquet.
Meaning “white of whites,” our Blanc de Blancs Reserve is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. Chardonnay contributes the wine’s bright, elegant citrus tones, while the Pinot Gris adds an appealing stone fruit character that enriches the wine’s texture and flavors.
This special release of Blanc de Blancs Extended Tirage with nearly 6 years on the yeast showcases even more toasty and complex flavors, without sacrificing the classic, vibrant, fresh Mumm Napa style.
We pick our Blanc de Blancs grapes by hand during the cool morning hours to ensure they arrive at the winery in pristine condition. Individual vineyard lots are fermented separately at cool temperatures to preserve freshness and fruit intensity. For this beautiful expression from the 2011 vintage, 25% of the base wine was fermented in oak barrels, adding depth, complexity, and a pleasant spice to the final blend. This wine spent nearly 6 years on the yeast.
The elegance and bright acidity of this wine screams for seafood. Enjoy it with a plate of fresh oysters, or poach halibut and serve it with panzanella for a simple, yet delightful meal.
