2016 Levantine Hill Blanc de Blanc

It is such that sparkling wine (Champagne if you like) is the wine for a celebration, and rightly so. “I just won the lottery; break out the Riesling” just doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it?    It seems to inexplicably add ‘special’ to special occasions.  The gathering and building of the bubbles as it is poured, the tingling sensation on your face as the bubbles burst and, the type and shape of the glass unknowingly adding to the special occasion.

Goodness me!  The aromatics are divine.  Simply, invitingly divine.  I do not feel I need to say anything more.  The palate is rich in flavour yet so refined across the taste buds.  Smooth, creamy, peachy and citrusy, all bundled up in a nicely balanced, magnifique Blanc de Blanc.  The winemaking team, lead by Paul Bridgeman, have captured vivaciousness, intensity and elegance, and there seems to be no end to it.

There is a certain, je ne sais quoi, about this wine that made it the perfect celebratory bubbles for a milestone I reached recently and, I have to say, it did add to the occasion, and it did make it special.  Thank you Levantine Hill.
