Blanc de Noirs (white from black) is the counterpart to Blanc de Blancs (white from white). Made from the red wine grape Pinot
Noir, this is a complex, fruity, medium-bodied sparkling wine. Schramsberg pioneered the Blanc de Noirs style in the United
States, releasing the first such American sparkler in 1967.
Making a white wine from a red grape requires great care – handpicked fruit, early morning harvest, optimal fruit maturity and
delicate pressing. A balance of bright flavors, crisp acidity and minimal tannins is achieved. Over two years of yeast contact in the
bottle knits all the elements together in a mature, toasty style.
"The 2004 Blanc de Noirs offers the essence of baked berry, nectarine, dried tropical
fruit and cherry blossom with subtle aromas of warm pie crust, biscuit and graham
cracker. Hints of guava and tonic lend an exotic note. The creamy mid-palate gives way
to a zesty red tropical fruit finish. This bright, quenching wine will develop plenty of
character and complexity over time while retaining it's youthful integrity."
–Winemakers Hugh Davies and Craig Roemer
Schramsberg Blanc de Noirs is particularly well-suited to serve with a variety of foods;
some examples include soft and nutty cheeses, macadamia nut crusted halibut, and pork
tenderloin with fresh rosemary and lemon thyme.
Focused on Schramsberg's top Chardonnay barrel and tank lots, and aged for seven years prior to release, J. Schram is the winery's signature Brut sparkling wine. Jack and Jamie Davies revived the historic vineyards and cellars in 1965, with a mission to produce California's first world-class sparkling wines. Today, led by their son Hugh, Schramsberg's team continues with this commitment to quality and innovation. Schramsberg also produces the J. Schram Rose, Reserve, Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, Brut Rose, Cremant Demi-Sec and J. Davies Diamond Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.
