2005 Blanc de Blancs
The most distinctive and elegant of the Iron Horse cuvées, made from 100% Chardonnay, this vintage is aged an average of 4 plus years on the yeast. It is ethereal - like drinking a cloud. It seems to effervesce away in your mouth and tastes like, among other flavors, a perfectly browned, lightly buttered slice of sourdough toast.
Food PairingA natural on Sunday morning with a beautiful, juicy melon. It is a sensational match with oysters, smoked salmon, caviar and pate. Ideal with roast chicken because it adds a clean, lemony flavor to the dish.
