Mission Briefing

Codename:

A Breath of Fresh Air

Today’s Breathless Wines Méthode Champenoise Blanc de Noirs certainly has the pedigree, with its Double Gold Medal & Best of Class win at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair. But could it stand up to the Wine Spies Tasting Panel?

The short answer: YES. We’re suckers for well made bubbly, and today’s offering most certainly fits the bill. Crafted in the méthode champenoise manner with 100% Pinot Noir, today’s wine features beautiful nuanced flavors and just a touch of complexity. Red raspberry and wild strawberry greet the initial palate, with additional hints of grapefruit, Meyer lemon zest, and honeysuckle shining through as well.

At under $25, today’s wine is perfect for your next special occasion - or your next weekend brunch. Why not nab enough for both?!

Tasting Profile

Look:

An enticingly beautiful pale apricot in color.

Smell:

Bright and incredibly delightful aromas of freshly picked wild strawberry and red raspberry rush out, with touches of dried cranberry, herbal white tea, honeycomb, and red ruby grapefruit zest completing the aromatic profile.

Taste:

Very well balanced and nuanced, with just a touch of complexity. Red cherry and raspberry mingle with Meyer lemon zest, red ruby grapefruit, a bit of pineapple, pomegranate herbal tea, honeysuckle, and a bit of hibiscus.

Finish:

Dry, with a bright acidity and mouth filling plume of mousse. The carbonation really complements the nuanced flavors, rather than overpowering it. This is an age-worthy bottle of bubbles.

Pairing:

Romaine salad with feta cheese and grilled prawns.
