This is Iron Horse's Blanc de Noirs, made from predominantly Pinot Noir. It has a beautiful, pale-peach hue. Rich and creamy, like pure strawberries and cream, this is without doubt the most romantic of our Sparklings. It is dangerously easy to drink. A favorite for many, Iron Horse is probably best known for this cuvée.
Marries perfectly with frisee salad with diced bacon and a Pinot Noir vinaigrette, Chinese chicken salad, scrambled eggs and caviar, rock shrimp and potato frittata, mushroom dishes such as a grilled Portobello sandwich or wild mushroom risotto, poached salmon - hot or cold, and best of all, chocolate dipped strawberries.
"Revealing tiny, well-formed bubbles, the 2006 Wedding Cuvee (86% Pinot Noir and 14% Chardonnay aged 3 years on the yeast) offers a chalky, lemon zest, and citrus-scented bouquet, a crisp, medium-bodied style with lots of minerality, outstanding purity, and good length. Hints of nectarine and lemon drops also emerge from this sparkler. It should drink well for 2-4 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Made, as usual, in a slightly sweeter style, with the dosage adding a honeyed note to the rich lime, tart red apple, smoke and brioche flavors. Delicious now, with great charm and elegance. "
