The development of this blend of 95% chardonnay and 5% pinot blanc certainly shows in its color, which is darker and much more golden than a young blanc de blancs. It was quite frothy when poured, and continued to bubble quite well over the course of an hour. Smells of fresh crusty baguette, candied pear, and a hint of caramel. The palate starts with ripe green apple and baked fruit (pear?), leading into a soft, creamy mid-palate. The citrusy finish is very crisp and tight, so I imagine this wine still has plenty of aging potential. Served at about 7°C (45°F). An outstanding wine, and a very good match for Comté cheese.
