Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs Brut 2015

North Coast Region, California, United StatesAlways one of America's top sparkling wines, and the 2015 is on par. A blend of 54 percent Napa and 46 percent Sonoma fruit, 18 percent of which fermented in barrel, and with more than two years on lees. This is lemon crisp, with an ample blanket of toast, dough bedding the medium bodied palate, with crispy citrus buffering around the edges. Acidity is high through the vibrating finish. The Blanc de Blancs was the first wine Schramsberg produced in 1965 and was America’s first commercially produced Chardonnay-based brut sparkling wine. It gained international recognition in 1972 when President Nixon served the wine at the historic "Toast to Peace" in Beijing, China.Tasted: 12 November 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 45.00 BC 40.00 specialty listing Producer: SchramsbergDistributors: Mondia Alliance Wines & Spirits
