Launched on the UK market only in late 2020, we are delighted to introduce Familia Geisse’s ‘Blanc de Noir Brut’ 2017, a Traditional Method white sparkling wine made entirely from Pinot Noir grapes (and hot news: its ‘sister wine’, the Blanc de Blanc 2017, scored 94 points in the December 2020 edition of Decanter!).
The Blanc de Noir was aged on the lees for a minimum 36 months; only 8650 bottles were produced. It has 12% Abv. and 8.5gm/ltr. residual sugar.
As with many other Pinot Noir based sparklers, this has great structure and is therefore recommended as a ‘food wine’, particularly to accompany well seasoned dishes. Would make an impressive gift for any fan of sparkling!
A full tasting note will follow but winemaker Carlos Abarzúa describes the 2017 as having ‘an elegant nose with some spicy notes..and a rich and creamy palate demonstrating all the elegance and sophistication of the Pinot Noir grape..’
