Expert review

The good thing here is that you get flavour, and a good deal of it, but you also get a dry finish, which both keeps you coming back and makes it a good match with food. Stonefruit and pear flavours are the motor for this wine, though they are tempered by citrus and gently complexed by pastry-like notes. It works well.


The Grape

Blanc de Blancs

French for “white of whites”, Blanc de Blancs is a sparkling wine made entirely from Chardonnay grapes. Made famous in Champagne, these wines have an incredible purity and linearity about them and express with intense lemon and apple-like fruit flavours, usually with an underlying seam of minerality and precise acidity.
