Francis Coppola Sofia Blanc De Blancs Sparkling 2016

Monterey County, California, United States
1 day, 8 hours ago

Gwen scored this wine: 89/100

A light and easy to drink sparkling made from a blend of Riesling, Muscat and Pinot Blanc. Fruity and vibrant. Pleasant notes of apple, honey dew and pears. Some sweetness. Very pretty presentation- comes wrapped in pink cellophane cover. Ford Coppola’s daughter (Sophia)must be proud. Worked incredibly well as we welcomed guests for Easter dinner. Tasted April 2019.

For lovers of heavily oaked chards. Full-bodied and rich. Pretty golden yellow in the glass . Intense toasted oak notes with undertones of stone fruit. Check out the cool label! Paired very well with aromatic hard cheese and smoked salmon. Tasted April 2019.

Definitely some sweetness. However, nice acidity to keep it balanced. Notes of apple, lime and finishing with wet stone. Small lot production- may be hard to find. Pair with a mild beef curry. Tasted at Taste of Ontario April 2019.
