Wine Review: This medium golden yellow colored Blanc de Blancs from Henriot displays lots of small to medium sized streaming bubbles. It opens with a yeasty mild bread dough bouquet with hints of faint green apple, toffee and dried apricot. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth, soft and refined. The flavor profile is a blend of gentle gravely minerality and bread dough. We also detected notes of faint lemon zest, green apple and toasted hazelnut. The finish is dry and its flavors and pleasant acidity drift away nicely. This Champagne will be a crowd pleaser and liked by many. It is also versatile enough to pair with many foods. We would pair it with bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy – Ken and Mark

Winemaker Notes: Pale gold, glistening and crystal-clear in appearance. The lively bubbles form a delicate, gossamer cortege in the glass. 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.
