2018 Fesstivity Blanc De Noirs
"...rich, textured and creamy from the outset. The richness of Pinot comes through in the wine's resonance and textural feel. Dried pear, chamomile, mint and dried flowers build effortlessly in the glass." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
"...offers more brioche and toasty notes as well as ample ripe apple and orchard fruits. More medium-bodied and nicely textured on the palate, with plenty of richness, it should drink brilliantly for 2-3 years." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
The delicate, persistent bubbles and straw color with a hint of salmon are harbingers of great things to come. You will detect hints of brioche, ginger and lemon rind on the nose. The palate offers up gorgeous citrus and tangerine flavors tempered by mineral notes and a delicious yeasty/pastry dough element as a result of extended time laying en tirage.
