  • Wine

    Calancombe Estate Blanc de Noirs 2017

  • Grape variety and tasting notes

    Pinot Noir harvested from a single 1.98 ha plot (5800 vines).

    This delicious sparkling wine, made in the traditional method, has a deep gold colour with long lasting fine bubbles. It has a lovely balance from its nose with hints of strawberries and citrus to its delicate long finish with touches of, cream, baked apple and gentle spices.

    ABV 12%

  • Wine making

    The hand-harvested grapes were gently whole bunch pressed to extract top quality juice which was fermented and aged in stainless steel for 7 months before bottling for its second fermentation. After ageing on its lees for 2 years the wine was disgorged with a light dosage of 3g/l.

  • Food pairing

    It makes the perfect aperitif and a great accompaniment to canapés such as smoked salmon blinis and gougères.
