The Blanc de Noirs has a delicate golden shine and has fruit aromas of strawberries and cacoa. Enhanced by over 36 months of lees ageing, the complex fruit flavours combined with a chalkiness give the wine a good body whilst retaining freshness. The balance is crisp with a long finish. To be enjoyed as an aperitif, with smoked salmon or with apple crumble.
