2016 Schramsberg North Coast Blanc de Blancs Brut Sparkling Wine

SKU #1419786 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A dense and layered white with cooked apples, pears and praline. Full body. Plenty of fruit flavor. Fresh and vivid. Vinous and fun. Yet, serious at the end. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Complexity and layering make this wine especially interesting as it goes from aromas of apple, butter and vanilla to deeper toast and baked apple on the palate. It’s medium in body, has tantalizing acidity and a lingering finish. (JG) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark A perennial winner when it comes to fine Blanc de Blancs, Schramsberg hits the mark once again with this first-rate effort. In this outing, the wine shows a good deal of slightly toasty, autolyzed richness while still showing the lighter step of the category and, in all ways, is a complete and genuinely elegant sparkler with a marvelously fine and very long-lasting mousse. A wine with the balance and brightness to work famously with food, it is also one whose layered complexity invites meditative savoring on its own. *Two Stars* Inner quote mark (12/2019)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Sleek, with pinpoint focus, offering harmonious Meyer lemon, candied almond and fresh ginger flavors that fan out on the crisp finish. Drink now. (TF) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The Davies family has been making sparkling wine for 50 years, and this Blanc de Blancs has become their flagship. It’s 100 percent Chardonnay and this vintage is firm and clean, with clarity to its pale, juicy apple fruit and savory, chalk-like notes from aging on the lees. Refreshing to drink on its own or with any shellfish. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

To best describe this wine to you I have to tell you a little secret... I mistook this bottle for Champagne on my sommelier test (not the final exam thank God!). Now, knowing better, I should have noticed by the ripeness of the fruit that this was no Champagne, but oh it was so delicious! Toasty and briochy, with lemon notes and also some tropical fruit and exotic spices. I definitely recommend the Schramsberg.
