Blanc de Noirs, North Coast – 2010
The 2010 Blanc de Noirs has bright aromas of red cherry, peach, apricot, Mandarin orange and mango. The fruitful nose finishes with nuances of lemon-raspberry tart and marzipan. The palate is full on entry with flavors of raspberry, candied pineapple, guava and ginger, complemented by notes of hazelnut and warm pastry crust. Crisp on entry with a balanced acidity, the palate is refined and lingering.
