Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green

Palate Round and supple in the mouth with a superb freshness, and notes of nectarine and citrus fruit. Lovely mineral finish, long and fresh.
Colour Bright pale golden yellow, with light green reflections.

Awards and/or Press Quotes
Jancis Robinson 17+/20
Wine Advocate 90/100 - "The NV Brut Blanc de Blancs is a great introduction to the house style. This elegant, fragrant wine offers up an array of smoke, toastiness, minerals, ripe pears and flowers. The medium-bodied NV Blanc de Blancs offers tons of clarity and precision at this level, with the lingering Ruinart sweetness on the finish."
