Description

"The 2015 Blanc de Blancs has fragrant jasmine and honeyed brioche scents over a core of peaches and pears plus a touch of beeswax. The palate delivers a great intensity of expressive peaches and cream and toasty layers with beautiful freshness and fine, frisky bubbles, finishing on a spicy note." ~ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
