Gloria Ferrer, Carneros, Methode Champenoise, Blanc de Noirs nv This is a newer bottling than that reviewed back in the fall of ’07, with a change of appellation from Sonoma County to Carneros.
The sweeter sense of dosage is there as before with citrus fruits, a little red candy and lingering acidity. The grapes for the base wine are mostly Pinot Noir. The color comes from the addition of a small portion of cold soaked Pinot Noir. P&B Sonoma 12.5% $12.99 at Bottle Barn Gloria Ferrer
