Blanc de blancs champagne from Dawe Wines, Bath Somerset.

Blanc de Blancs Champagnes

Blanc de Blancs designates Champagnes made only from Chardonnay grapes. The vineyards located between Cramant and Mesnil-sur-Oger in Cote de Blancs produce the best examples of the style.

A classic Blanc de Blancs is restrained and elegant when young, yet with ageing it develops a brioche richness that overlays an expression of fruitiness. Blanc de Blancs provide better ageing potential than a typical Blanc de Noirs.

"Wine can be considered with good reason as the most healthful and hygenic of all beverages."

 

- Louis Pasteur
