2015 Blanc de Blancs

2015 Blanc de Blancs

2015 Blanc de Blancs

White blossom steals the nose while hints of lime and orange zest on the palate leave you tasting the wine long after it has gone. The time on lees gives a complexity and mouthfeel that perfectly balances this distinguished sparkling.

Other Notes
Following heavy rainfalls in the winter, the 2015 growing conditions were exceptional. Mild and consistent temperatures over the summer and a cool and dry autumn produced beautiful fruit, balanced yields and healthy canopies. The resulting wines have bright fruit, great balance and persistence. One of our very best vintages.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes
There is a complexity and generosity that comes from extended lees ageing, which provides layers of weighty richness. This is a serious sparkling wine with unquestioned complexity and stout acidity.
