Country: Michigan, USA
Region: Leelanau Peninsula AVA
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Larry Mawby has been producing fine wines in the Leelanau Peninsula since 1978, this Blanc de Noir is another sophisticated example. 100% Pinot Noir that is hand-picked and whole-cluster pressed, fermented in stainless steel then blended with reserve wines and fermented a second time in the bottle.
Peach and apple combines with touches of yeasty bready notes reminiscent of true Champagne along with delightful crispness and fine bubbles.
Sparkling, bubbly, fizzante, we love these wines. While Champagne only comes from Champagne, France (and it deserves its own name, it is a unique and special wine in this category) there are plenty of excellent champagne style wines at all price points. We look forward to sharing them with you.
