Wine Review: This light yellow colored Blanc de Blanc from Henriot displays very tiny streaming bubbles. It was one of the top performing Sparklers from our Big Blind Tasting. It opens with a fragrant bread dough, light lemon and chamomile bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, perfectly balanced and creamy. We all really liked the mouth feel. The flavor profile is a very tasty mineral infused lime with notes of almond and lemon zest. The finish is dry and very refreshing with very good overall length. The Panel suggested pairing this gem with bacon wrapped scallops or poached rainbow trout. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Pale gold, glistening and crystal-clear in appearance. The lively bubbles form a delicate, gossamer cortege in the glass. The bouquet releases a flourish of minerality and bold freshness, together with aromas of citrus fruits and sun-kissed white peach. A bouquet of fresh flowers unleashes notes of honeysuckle and orange blossom, interweaved with lime flower. Fruit aromas redolent of lemon and dried apricot lead the wave, followed by pastry notes and a typical suggestion of fresh butter. Initially lively, generous and powerful on the palate. The hint of fresh lemon lingers and dissolves into butter-laced brioche notes, extended further by quince paste and acacia honey. Lovely, fresh and quite delicious length on the finish.
