Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs Vintage Brut 2014


This is a very good sparkling wine from Schramsberg in California.  The appellation is North Coast.  Should the name prove unilluminating outside of California, the vineyards are in fact in the Napa and Sonoma counties.  The sparkling wine itself is a blanc de blancs chardonnay made using the traditional method.  In the glass, there are Champagne like aromas of bread and brioche.  The palate retains a fresh acidity which I did not expect, with lemon and brioche overtones.  This is a serious sparkling that is fairly priced.  Rating: Very Good. Abv: 12.8%. Price: $65. Website: www.schramsberg.com
