2018 Blanc de Noirs

Blanc de Noirs means “white from blacks,” which aptly describes this white sparkling wine made from the red Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes.

Overview

This Blanc de Noirs is a true expression of the Pinot Noir grape. It showcases the power and juiciness that are hallmarks of Pinot Noir. Vibrant fruit aromas of peach, orange, raspberry, red apple, and strawberry are accented with toasty biscuit notes from more than 3 years on the yeast. On the palate, the wine has a fruity attack, with toasted notes and a hint of spice coming in mid-palate. The mouthfeel is broad and juicy with a delicate mousse. To learn about the differences between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, compare this wine with the 2018 Blanc de Blancs. It’s a great way to understand what each variety contributes to a blend.

Occasion

This wine would be perfect with our west coast winter treat of Dungeness crab. If you can’t get Dungeness, pair with the crab of your choice. It would also be nice with a winter squash risotto.
