SCHRAMSBERG SPARKLING BLANC DE BLANCS NORTH COAST 2012 375ml HALF-BOTTLE
One of my favorite cuvées, and it's their largest and most successful commercial cuvée, is their 2012 Blanc de Blancs. This is 100% Chardonnay, dry with about 15% barrel-fermented. This is a killer effort and it's my go-to sparkling wine when I'm at restaurants since it's always available at a fair price. The 2012 shows loads of orange blossom notes, crisp green apple notes, a touch of caramelized grapefruit in a gorgeously fresh, medium-bodied, concentrated and delicious sparkling wine with tiny, pinpoint bubbles and a long, zesty finish. eRobertParker.com # , #222 (Dec 2015) Drink 2015 - 2020
One of Schramsberg's younger releases, and made from all white grapes, this wine has tantalizing aromas of vanilla, apple and light toast that lead to layered and creamy flavors. A nice brisk balance with good acidity underlies the spice and fruit. 6/1/2016 JIM GORDON
