The 2019 Ocean Reserve is a special, limited production, vintage Blanc de Blancs. This is a giving wine: a portion of every bottle sold goes to help protect our ocean. The Ocean is the engine of our micro climate, which allows us to make Sparkling Wine on this level of finesse. The recipient changes with the vintage. This year, the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, CA.
“Blanc de Blancs lovers have the most discerning tastes.”
“This wine offers vanilla, coconut and toasted brioche tones that lift out of the glass before a plush, fine-beaded mousse soothes the palate. Pastry shop flavors have a sense of sweetness to round off the wine’s texture, leaving it smooth and soft. 92 points.” — Jim Gordon
On the nose, very inviting tropical fruit, lychee and green apple. Green apple and lemon zest on the front palate. Creamy and rich throughout the palate. Great minerality in the mid to back palate with a touch of salinity on the finish.
This cuvee is a blend of two Chardonnay clones – Clone 4 and Rued Clone, hand harvested – from six different blocks on the estate. The dosage for this wine is 8 ml Blanc de Blanc LEX, 8 ml 2018 Heart of the Vineyard Chardonnay.
One of the great all time pairings is popcorn and bubbly – especially stovetop popcorn made with extra virgin olive oil. A perfect treat for date night. Let’s get popping!!!! Our preferred olive oil is from our friends and neighbors at Olive Queen in Forestville, CA.View Recipe
