External Reviews for Schramsberg Vineyards Champagne Blend Napa Valley J Schram
Rating: 95/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Once again, Schramsberg's flagship bubbly winds up at the right end of the leaderboard. Its bold, complex blending of toast, caramel, yeast and crème brûlée takes it far beyond the realm of primary fruit, and yet, for all that the wine possesses, it succeeds because it has energetic, briskly focused fruit at its heart. With its creamy mousse of small bubbles and its rich, developed flavors in the mouth, it is a wine to serve with a first course of a fois gras crème caramel or a finely crafted lobster mousse because nothing less decadent will bring out all that is on offer here.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.
Schramsberg J. Schram 2003 and all other sparkling wine from Schramsberg available for immidieate dilivery at discounted prices from WineDada.com. We also carry wide variety of wine from USA and all other parts of world.
Dedicated to the founder of Schramsberg, their J. Schram was first made in 1987. Using only the top 5 to 7% of their grapes, only 1500 cases are made. This is a blend of 75% Chardonnay & 25% PN that sees some barrel fermentation. The result is showing evolution yet with a lush, toasty palate with notes of quince, green apples & pineapple.
