Pale straw color. Yeasty aromas of fresh croissant, honey butter, spiced apples, and apricot preserve with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long toasted hawaiian roll, crushed almonds, and sponge cake finish with crunchy tannins and light oak flavor. A vibrant and fresh Champagne with vivid notes of fresh croissant.

Champagne Blanc de Blancs

Serve in a Champagne Flute
Blanc de Blancs, literally "white from white" refers to a Champagne that is made with only white grapes. For Champagne that white grape is exclusively Chardonnay. Blanc de Blancs also pair beautifully with many types of seafood, from grouper to tilapia.

As Chardonnay grown in the Champagne region has such naturally high acidity, the common thinking is that a Blanc de Blancs Champagne ages better than most other Champagnes, although its aging potential depends on numerous factors, including vine age, depth of fruit and cellar practices.
