The Blanc de Blancs has brilliant clarity, is medium deep straw in colour, with a bright gold lustre and fine, persistent bead. The bouquet expresses enticing aromas of lemon meringue, jasmine flower, Chinese five spice and sea spray.
The elegantly structured palate is intense citrus essence complemented by lanolin, truffle oil, rich umami and bright saline characters. A rich and viscous palate with a great acid line, tannic structure and immensely persistent flavours. Intensely complex and yet retaining the vibrancy of character that is the hallmark of the House of Arras.
