Korbel's 2012 Master's Reserve Blanc de
Noirs Champagne was made from a blend of three different grape
varieties. After several years of letting Sangiovese play a
leading role, we decided to go back to a more traditional Pinot
Noir-centered blend. We still wanted to be just a little
"outside-the-box" of the typical Blanc de Noirs style, however, so
we chose to blend in a little Chardonnay and just a bit of
Sangiovese. In 2012, the Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
cuvee wines displayed beautiful raspberry and strawberry fruit
characters. The Sangiovese contributed brisk acidity and a
red cherry character. While we liked the combination of these
two varieties, the blend was missing a little backbone, so we added
in some Russian River Valley Chardonnay to contribute acidity and
green apple flavors. The end result speaks for
All of the grapes used for the 2012 Master's
Reserve Blanc de Noirs were pressed using the traditional whole
cluster pressing technique. This method yields fewer
gallons per ton of grapes than normal crushing methods, but
the juice quality is far superior, particularly for a delicate
cuvee such as this Blanc de Noirs.
The 2012 Master's Reserve Blanc de Noirs
Champagne is very dry, with a pleasant balance between crisp red
fruit and spicy flavors. Try it with a variety of shellfish,
sushi or salads featuring fresh or dried fruits.
