2016 LaRue's Blanc de Blancs
Our 2016 Blanc de Blancs is made with higher elevation, old-vine fruit from our estate. A glowing pale straw color, aromatics of brioche, perfectly ripe pear, lemon curd, and star anise fill the glass. The palate has an energetic tension that is met with fine bubbles, which carries through a mouthwatering finish.
The 2016 LaRue’s Blanc de Blancs was fermented and aged in neutral French oak for eight months before being tiraged. It then matured on tirage lees for almost four years, creating a round and creamy texture to the palate. While it’s enjoyable now, this wine will continue to evolve for decades.
