Boissieu “Granit” Brut Nature, Reserve de Lavernette

Until now the only Blanc de Noir I’ve had was made from Pinot Noir, so when I saw this it had to be tasted. This Brut Nature is made from 100% Beaujolais Villages Gamay grapes in the Mâcon region of Burgundy. It’s extremely light, dry, and bizarrely echoes the purple fruit of Gamay although it’s nearly clear in colour. Overall I wanted it to have more character, be more expressive- it was pretty “airy” and a little sour. Still, it was a cool new bubble to try, and went really well with brunch.
