Ultramarine's 2012 Blanc de Blancs Charles Heintz Vineyard is bright, focused and nicely sculpted, with plenty of lemon peel, chalk, savory herb and mint overtones. The 2012 is a bit reserved today, perhaps because of its recent disgorgement. Even so, the flavors are bright, vivid and striking in their purity. Dosage is 2 grams per liter. (AG)
This smells proper! A little bit of oak influence is evident, then a certain bruised-apple quality. ‘There’s so much intentionality in this wine’, says Jasmine Hirsch who is tasting with us. Apparently this is one of the few non-champagne sparkling wines to have a secondary market. I can believe it. This wine is a revelation to me. ‘I’m not interested in copying a big house style, I want to express site like a grower’, says Michael Cruse. Very clean, refreshing and nicely balanced. Cruse wants the wine to taste of California. 17.5/20 points. (JR)
