Blanc de Blancs NV

$98.99

- A rare 100% Pinot Blanc champagne

- Highly aromatic, richly textured and suited for those who prefer slightly sweeter champagne

- Pair it with Honeydew Melon and prosciutto with some toasted ciabatta. Simple, refreshing with enough saltiness to offset the champagne.

Pinot Blanc is rarely seen as a mono-varietal in champagne as its home is usually in Alsace.

The nose is exotic, lots of floral and honeyed aromas leading to honeydew melon, yellow grapefruit and a combined bakery/spice like nose similar to that of - Tipsy Cake - Pineapple with bread and butter style pudding.

The palate is light yet showing some weight and a creaminess to the finish. Notes of 'juicy-fruit' gum and pineapple showing some more of that tropical note.

My only gripe is that with such an interesting and rare variety, does the dosage need to be so high? Either way, it drinks well and suits as an excellent aperitif.

We have only fond things to say about the Fourrier family. Fourth generation heirs Mathilde, Julien and Stephanie now run the house on behalf of this passion family whose vineyards are located in the deep south of the Champagne region in the Cote de Bar. Mathilde is familiar with the Australian market and landscape after spending a considerable period of time here in 2016 learning about her market. Young and extremely passionate Julien Fourrier has taken over the wine making reins and is producing some quality cuvees. This is truly a family affair and a great example of a grower champagne from the south who is marking their mark globally. These wines are exceptional good quality and great value.
