Description

"An all-Chardonnay bottling, Asian pear, lemon pith and wet clay are its primary aromas. The palate is all about minerality, its lime and tangerine flavors tinged with chalk, and crushed gravel." ~ Wine Enthusiast

“The 2014 Blanc de Blancs Fesstivity offers lovely varietal definition, with plenty of orchard fruit and floral notes. With a little more aging, the Blanc de Blancs has the potential to be a significantly more complex and pedigreed wine. As it is, the Blanc de Blancs is quite delicious. Fruit sources are Rancho Las Hermanas and Parker West.” ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

The 2014 Fesstivity Blanc de Blancs has bright, fresh aromas of citrus and lemongrass with hints of biscuit and a subtle minerality.  Flavors of green apple, citrus and mineral notes are made more complex with hints of caramel and toast.
