Tendil & Lombardi: Blanc de Blancs and Blanc de Noirs
27th May 2015
Blanc de Blancs
Pale yellow. Fresh melon, pear, tangerine and mint on the nose, with a subtle chalky quality adding lift. Juicy and fruit-driven, with vibrant citrus and melon flavors complemented by richer poached pear and fig notes. Finishes with tangy minerality and very good spicy persistence. This suave, seamless Champagne would make a great companion to a richly sauced fish preparation
Blanc de Noirs
Light gold. Apple, pear and toasty lees on the nose, with notes of anise and dried rose adding complexity. Dry and gripping on the palate, offering firm, refreshingly bitter redcurrant and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of blood orange. Uncompromisingly racy, firm bubbly with very good finishing clarity and bite”.
