The House of Arras Blanc de Blancs is a tribute to Chardonnay; a variety often considered the pinnacle of classic sparkling wine varieties for its elegance and longevity. A perfectly poised and elegant Blanc de Blancs, displaying intense citrus layers, complemented by notes of lanolin, truffle oil, exotic spice and bright saline characters.
Full Tasting Notes
  • Appearance

    Brilliant clarity, is medium deep straw in colour, with a bright gold lustre and fine, persistent bead.
  • Aroma

    Layers of lime essence, jasmine flower, shortbread biscuit and oyster shell.

  • Palate

    A rich and viscous palate that shows exceptional umami flavours.

  • Vintage

    Winter rainfall was well above average and the continuing, light spring rains maintained a relatively high soil moisture content to support strong vine growth during the growing season.

Winemaking Notes

A sophisticated Blanc de Blancs style that is always crafted from the best Chardonnay of the vintage. Pristine Chardonnay fruit was hand-picked and gently bunch pressed to ensure the extraction of the finest juice. After 7 years of lees maturation the disgorged wine is completed with a tailored dosage to create a style of great sophistication and poise.

Always a favourite. There is a special mix of intensity, finesse, length and purity.
