  • Found a bottle of this in our cellar... The 5 years of bottle age is amazing, and added a lot of complexity!

  • A very pleasant and appealing Blanc de Blanc. Soft, flavorful, slightly yeasty.

  • I have enjoyed many of the Coppola products and had an earlier vintage of Sofia Blanc de Blanc before and liked it. The 2009 seems to be lacking in some fruit flavors and leaning more towards minerality and herb. On Sight, it is straw yellow in color so that is good. On the nose, some peach, citrus, and a hint of floral. On the palate, lots of effervescence with a medium weight mouth feel. Light flavors of stone fruit. herb, minerality, and almost a "wheat" like finish that you would get from a wheat beer. Not a beer taste, just this essence of wheat. It was very refreshing and light and would be great on a hot summer day. Hopefully we have a few of those left! But it was nice and would be interested in trying a new vintage soon. This would pair well with shrimp and seafood, baked chicken with lemon, light to medium cheeses, or a light salad.

    On our SiNoTas scale, I would give the 2009 Francis Ford Coppola 'Sofia' Blanc de Blanc a B rating. Light and effervescent and refreshing on a hot day! If you have a 2009, I would drink it by the end of this year because I don't feel it will improve anymore with age. Unless you prefer a sparkling wine with less fruit and more herb. WineSplashing!

  • almost seemed like it was going to go moscato on me which would have worked, but overall seems more American energy drink, which I consume often and don't mind, but in the wine world... serve it to those who just want to get drunk at a party

  • Great package. Very average wine. Had little of interest to make any notes on, decided to mix it into a mimosa. Would not buy again.
