Blanc de Noirs, North Coast
Only a hint of pink in the straw color of this wine gives a clue that it’s made from dark grapes. A tempting, toasty, doughy aroma leads to a rich blend of fruity and savory flavors, all backed by lively acidity and a long-lasting stream of fine bubbles.
The Tasting Panel
It’s a lovely, medium-bodied brut with aromas of late-spring fruit; fresh and succulent apricot and crisp apple with a spark of gingerbread. The perfume continues as honeyed tropical fruits and Asian pear chime in on the palate.
