Biltmore Estate – Blanc De Noir

Biltmore_1My first post, as a guest blogger, so please bear with me as I learn the art of the craft.

Bottle Claim: "Delicate, yet crisp… Cherry, Strawberry and Spice…"

Oddly enough, this pinot noir based sparkling wine (I’m always impressed when an American winery respects the Champagne designation, although Biltmore does add Methode Champenoise to the label) has a crisp lingering finish that channels the fruit/berry  side of Pinot. Tiny bubbles add to the nice dry taste that makes this an enjoyable stand alone beverage that reminds me of a Mimosa.

We tried this along with a nice cheese and ham quiche. The evening breakfast went very well with the light fruitiness that seems better suited for a nice relaxing evening.

The overall rating:

Let’s hope this first post works. More details later as I try to catch up on the wine blogging backup caused by too much work and too little time.
