Bell Blanc de Noirs, North Coast

Vineyards
  The North Coast of California is open door to chilly breezes off the Pacific, creating the signature cool climate growing conditions for the region, contributing finesse, elegance and grace to the final wines. This inviting sparkling wine is made from the three traditional grapes used in the Champagne region of France, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Pinot Noir (39%) and Pinot Meunier (8%) create the texture, body and aromas of the blend, and Chardonnay (53%) brings a crisp edge and luscious flavor.

Vinification
Champagne along with Port, is one of the most complicated wines to make. Not only are the steps involved numerous and demanding, the winemaker must also see into the future what the still wine will taste like after the second fermentation and bottling. One must be extra careful in the handling of these grapes, especially black grapes like the Pinots Noir and Meunier. They must be pressed quickly and gently so as to not extract any color or tannin. Each lot of grapes is vinified separately so one can extract the unique attributes of each wine and blend them together at the end.  This sparkling wine is produced in the traditional Champagne method which entails adding a dosage sugar, yeast, and wine to start the second fermentation in the bottle, followed by time-consuming hand or machine riddling to separate the yeast following fermentation. The traditional method creates small, tight, delicate bubbles and an added complexity to the wine.

Tasting Notes
This fresh and lovely sparkler is perfect as an aperitif to start any dining experience or perfect on its own. Sparkling wine pairs with simply everything, no matter what or when the occasion. The wine opens with an inviting nose of apple, pear and lemon crème cookie. The palate is delicate, refined and balanced with a toasted brioche character. Beautiful acidity from this cool growing regions carry the baked apple and ginger spice notes across the palate, readying your taste buds for food. Our Blanc de Noirs is finished in the dry style.
