Gloria Ferrer Blanc de Blancs (NV)

Product description

In Champagne, Blanc de Blancs is considered the most challenging to make yet the most coveted. In California, Blanc de Blancs is known as one of the most versatile sparkling wines due to its lively acidity. This acidity comes from using only Chardonnay, hence the “white of white” translation of its name.

This crisp Blanc de Blancs opens with aromas of green apple, apricot, and Valencia orange. Subtle apple notes and a slightly creamy finish complement flavors of Bartlett pear in this vibrant sparkling Chardonnay.

The bright citrus flavor on the mid-palate with a slight toasty finish is a match for grilled chicken glazed with orange and ginger. For the dessert course, try Meyer lemon mousse with ripe raspberries. Add toasted Marcona almonds and dried mango to a cheese board, along with triple cream cheeses such as cambozola, Brie, or La Tur.

90 Points - Wine Spectator    Graceful and polished, featuring expressive green apple and lemon notes, laced with hints of white chocolate that linger on the lively finish. Drink now.

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast    Shy aromas of crisp yellow apple and brown sugar follow up on the palate, with compelling hints of orange blossom along the way. Quaffable and likable, it's made from 100% Chardonnay and finishes mellow and refined.
