    October 2, 2017 - Wow. Ten years old, but just a touch honeyed. Still bright, lively and complex - with hints of toast, lemon, mineral, meringue and melon. Sweeter than we expected a Brut to be, but the sweetness only rounds out the edges and is more than balanced by a backbone of bright acidity. Love this.

    March 9, 2017 - Lovely and nicely developed. Still a solid acid backbone and overall a great bottle. Toast and biscuit flavors with a touch of nuts and green apples.
    Perhaps lacks some length but a great wine and the BdB is worth cellaring.

    May 4, 2015 - Chardonnay sourced from multiple locations: Napa (59%), Sonoma (31%), Mendocino (7%) and Marin (3%). Aged for 30 months on the lees. Dosage 11,5 g/l.

    Youthful and intense lime-green color. Ripe, rich and toasty nose with complex aromas of sweet baked apple, sliced Granny Smith apple, bready autolysis, some freshly-baked brioche, a little bit of lemon curd and a hint of nuttiness. The wine is dry, mineral and already somewhat developed with nuanced flavors of ripe golden apples, steely minerality, some juicy sweet citrus tones, a little bit of mature nutty complexity, a hint of toasty autolysis and a touch of creaminess. The high acidity and firm, crisp mousse make the wine feel structured, refreshing and well-balanced. The finish is long, crisp and complex with toasty flavors of steely minerality, baked apple, some autolytic toasted bread, a little bit of developed caramel, a hint of chopped nuts and a touch of tangy lemony citrus fruit.

    A very bright, sophisticated and complex Blanc de Blancs that shows how great a winery Schramsberg is: this is not only a great sparkling wine on its own, but also one that would fool even a Champagne enthusiast into believing this is a BdB from Champagne! Very serious stuff with a lot of depth, great structure and wonderful harmony. Starting to get into its sweet spot in the tasting window, but I have no doubts this wine will continue to develop for another 8-10 years. A beautiful bubbly, very highly recommended.

    April 11, 2014 - For my tastes this almost always needs a couple of years to settle, nose s still quite primary with ripe apple, lemon zest and biscuit, palate though still has good intensity but in a more refined way with nice a cidity and a nice finish
