Predominantly Chardonnay with some Pinot Gris, the name literally means "white of whites". Pairs with light foods and bright days.
Our 2008 Blanc de Blancs is a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Gris grapes sourced from a half-dozen top vineyards in Napa Valley’s southern areas. This vintage-dated Blanc de Blancs perfectly marries fresh, elegant, citrus fruit aromas and flavors with a luxurious creamy/toasty tone that enriches the wine.
The 2008 Blanc de Blancs displays complex aromas of lime, sweet Meyer lemon and golden apple, with floral, nutty, and spicy nuances. Crisp and focused on the palate, its bright citrus, apple and peach flavors persist throughout a long, mouthwatering finish.
We pick our Blanc de Blancs grapes by hand during the cool morning hours to ensure they arrive at the winery in pristine condition. The individual vineyard lots are fermented separately at cool temperatures in small stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and fruit intensity.
A few selected lots are aged in French oak barrels to add depth, complexity and spiciness to the final blend. This Blanc de Blancs spent 48 months en tirage, which fosters its wonderful complexity. After disgorging, a small dosage is added back to balance the wine’s acidity.
This wine is a perfect match with oysters, calamari and salads.
