Some things only make sense in French or, more specifically, the French wine vernacular. Blanc de Blancs, when translated into English, reads as ‘White of Whites’, a preposition flanked by two identical nouns. It sounds confusing and a little circuitous. But it all clicks into place in the delicate alchemy of champagne production.Gerald Lu, head sommelier of Praelum Wine Bistro, thinks blends are the “heart and soul of champagnes”, but “a Blanc de Blancs is a sparkling Chardonnay at its most delicate and elegant”. Ruinart, the oldest champagne house, is known for its flagship non-vintage Blanc de Blancs, which has, in recent years, become the de facto Blanc de Blancs pour of many sommeliers. Champagne Salon and Pierre Gimonnet et Fils make only Blanc de Blancs bubblies, and, like Ruinart, source fruit solely or largely from the Cote des Blancs – Champagne’s top region for Chardonnay – a practice that has shaped their house or … [Read more...] about White gold: What makes Blanc de Blancs champagnes so loved by oenophiles?
