2017 Mumm Napa Eclipse Blanc de Noirs

On August 21st, 2017, we were treated to a very special solar eclipse, right in the middle of harvest. In honor of that special day, we made a Blanc de Noirs blend from vineyards harvested the day of the Eclipse itself.

Overview

This wine has a lovely, pale copper color. Aromas of juicy orange, strawberry, nectarine, and yellow plum complement the toasty biscuit notes coming from 4 and a half years on the yeast. The wine opens with a burst of red apple followed by gilled bread and toasty yeast flavors. A fine and persistent mousse and bright acid profile play into a powerful structure typical of Pinot Noir. The long finish carries into notes of strawberry and dried peaches.

Occasion

The structure of this wine calls for something rich and creamy to balance it. It’s excellent paired with a triple crème cheese to start a meal, but would also be delicious with a creamy shrimp fettucine alfredo.
