Francois Montand – Fine French Bubbly for Less!
Francois Montand Blanc de Blancs Brut
If you love Champagne but aren’t a fan of the price tag, Francois Montand is an excellent choice! Franois Montand learned to craft world class sparkling wines in his family’s home vineyards in Champagne. During World War 2, German occupation forced Francois to move his operation to the Jura, one of the oldest winemaking regions in France. He never returned to Champagne, but his sparkling wines still provide the same elegance and depth of fine Champagne. His Blanc de Blancs Brut remains one of the absolute best values in sparkling wine today.
Lovely pear, quince, and ginger flavors cruise along, with racy edged mousse. A lingering hint of walnut adds range and contrast on the finish.
