Grongnet, Blanc de Blancs, Champagne, NV

This wine is a Blanc de Blancs and a true Champagne. As a true Champagne, it is from the Champagne region of France. Champagne is typically made of a blend of 3 grapes: pinot noir, pinot meunier, and chardonnay. Blanc de Blancs is made only with the chardonnay grape; this makes Blanc de Blancs a more delicate sparkling wine.

This is an interesting and very citrusy Blanc de Blancs. It has a soft mousse, distinct flavor of lime zest, and is quite tart. It should be paired with something rich and creamy, like a triple creme brie.

Price: $33
