HALF BOTTLE

TASTING NOTE:

A dense and layered white with cooked apples, pears and praline. Full body. Plenty of fruit flavor. Fresh and vivid. Vinous and fun. Yet, serious at the end. Drink now.
-James Suckling, 93 pts

 100% Chardonnay. A perennial winner when it comes to fine Blanc de Blancs, Schramsberg hits the mark once again with this first-rate effort. In this outing, the wine shows a good deal of slightly toasty, autolyzed richness while still showing the lighter step of the category and, in all ways, is a complete and genuinely elegant sparkler with a marvelously fine and very long-lasting mousse. A wine with the balance and brightness to work famously with food, it is also one whose layered complexity invites meditative savoring on its own.
-Connoisseur's Guide, 91 pts

Sleek, with pinpoint focus, offering harmonious Meyer lemon, candied almond and fresh ginger flavors that fan out on the crisp finish. Drink now.
-Wine Spectator, 91 pts

The Davies family has been making sparkling wine for 50 years, and this Blanc de Blancs has become their flagship. It’s 100 percent chardonnay and this vintage is firm and clean, with clarity to its pale, juicy apple fruit and savory, chalk-like notes from aging on the lees. Refreshing to drink on its own or with any shellfish.

The nose of the 2016 Blanc de Blancs is bright and fresh, with scents of quince peel, red apples, floral perfume, brioche and a nutty undercurrent. The light-bodied palate is dry with energetic mousse and a nice balance of mineral and tirage character, finishing with fantastic freshness.
-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 90 pts

WINEMAKER'S NOTE:

The 2016 Blanc de Blancs has bright and fresh aromas of green apple, apricot and orange blossom. The fruitful fragrance intermingles with hints of honey, and lemon zest. Freshly sliced peaches, pear and bright pineapple flavors carry vibrant length on the palate.

While this wine can be enjoyed by itself as an apéritif, it is also perfect with fresh oysters and other shellfish, crab cakes, ceviche and grilled sea bass. It is also delicious with lemon chicken and Thai curries. Serve with aged Gouda or other hard cheeses, and as a counterpoint to soft triple creams.
