Jordan MCC Blanc de Blancs 2015
“The 2015 Jordan Blanc de Blancs, Method Cap Classique, is an exceptional wine from an exceptional vintage. In its youth, the 2015 vintage showed wonderful elegance and complexity, making it the perfect vintage for us to reserve some of the bottling for longer aging on the lees, a total of 54 months. This late disgorged wine expresses both the finesse and character of Jordan Chardonnay, for which the estate is so well known, as well as the richness and balance of the 2015 vintage.” ~ Kathy Jordan
