2013 Blanc de Noirs
Three carefully selected clones of Pinot Noir (667 / 777/ 4) are blended with Pinot Meunier to craft this white gold sparkler. An expressive nose features dark cherry pate de fruit with a touch of bartlett pear. A creamy mousse imparts a sense of finesse and texture, layered with flavors of raspberry, shortbread, and pastry cream. Crisp acidity is complimented by a rich mid-palate and long finish.
