Review: 2017 Sokol Blosser Blanc de Blanc
This Oregon sparkler is composed of 30% pinot blanc and 70% chardonnay, cutting a profile that any domestic sparkling fan should find familiar. Lightly doughy but expressive with notes of lemon curd, apple cider, and some tangerine, it’s heavy on the fizz, which tempers some of the creamier qualities of the otherwise rich body. The finish retreats a bit to a brioche note, dusted with lemon juice, making for a perfectly approachable yet rather straightforward wine.
