All Chardonnay, this wine has a dry elegance that makes it taste really upscale. It shows subtle peach, bread dough, smoky char and vanilla flavors, and is quite acidic. Makes you think of wedding toasts.

Gloria Ferrer is one of the most respected sparkling wine producers in California. This Blanc de Blanc is 100% Chardonnay. Flavors of baked apples and crisp citrus combine with a soft nuttiness that makes this wine irresistible. Not quite as dry as a Brut, it is very appealing to Champagne drinkers of all ages!

Winemaker's Notes:

Crafted exclusively from hand-harvested Chardonnay, the 2005 Blanc de Blancs represents the synergy of careful grape growing, artisan cellar practices and the winemaker's blending skill. Blanc de Blancs is prized among sparkling wine connoisseurs because of the rich textural qualities, complex aromas, elegance and promising aging potential that Chardonnay provides. • Whole-cluster pressed for delicacy • Fermented in stainless steel tanks at temperatures of 55F to 60F to retain vibrancy and freshness • This cuvee is a blend of eight base wines • More than three years cellar aging on the yeast developed great complexity and lasting effervescence

Tasting Notes:

An abundant mousse and enticing aromas of delicate orange blossoms, ripe Gravenstein apple, vanilla and brioche announce this elegant Blanc de Blancs. Its full, creamy entry on the palate reveals complex flavors of ripe pear, lemon meringue and hints of white chocolate along with mineral notes that persist on a fresh, lasting, precisely balanced finish.
