The 1997 Yarden Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine possesses a delicate, yet complex mixture of characters, including lemon, apple and floral notes, all layered with a hint of rich toast. The wine’s generous acidity leads into a tasty and fresh finish. While ready to drink, Yarden Blanc de Blancs will age gracefully for a few years after disgorging. The wine makes an excellent and festive aperitif, paired with canapes on the rich and/or salty side, such as caviar or pate. Yarden Blanc de Blancs’ subtle flavors also pair well with delicately flavored foods, such as sushi or pan fried chicken breasts finished with a splash of Blanc de Blancs.
