“One of my favorite cuvées, and it’s their largest and most successful commercial cuvée, is their 2012 Blanc de Blancs. This is 100% Chardonnay, dry with about 15% barrel-fermented. This is a killer effort and it’s my go-to sparkling wine when I’m at restaurants since it’s always available at a fair price. The 2012 shows loads of orange blossom notes, crisp green apple notes, a touch of caramelized grapefruit in a gorgeously fresh, medium-bodied, concentrated and delicious sparkling wine with tiny, pinpoint bubbles and a long, zesty finish. The Davies family thinks this can last 20 years, but for most readers, they might prefer to drink it upon release and over the following 4-5 years. This was first made when the winery debuted its early sparkling wines in 1965.” – Wine Advocate, 92 pts.
