Chateau de Bligny, Grand Reserve Brut Champagne
Another wine pulled for our social distance with another couple on the patio yesterday late afternoon. This was a solid recommendation from Jim Denham of The Wine Steward in Pleasanton, California. On the eyes a light golden color with lots of tiny bubbles. On the nose, white fruit (pear and apple) appeared without the sweetness. In the palate, light toasted nuts, slight apricot and a creamy bread dough. Most notable was the chalkiness of the Champagne region. A refreshing Champagne with temperatures reaching 87 degrees outside to awaken the senses. Made with 50% Chardonnay grapes and 50% Pinot Noir grapes.
