The 2016 Blanc de Noirs has an expressive and fruity nose, with notes of Bing cherry, red apple, orange, and peach. This wine is a balance between fresh fruit and toasty yeast, a result of more than 3 years en tirage.
Blanc de Noirs means “white from blacks,” an apt description for this white sparkling wine. If you have ever cut into a red grape, you’ve probably noticed that the inside is usually white, and the same is true with Pinot Noir. In this wine, the color is extracted from the skins.
You know how good that turkey sandwich tastes the day after Thanksgiving? The only thing to make it better would be this wine.
