2005 Lilbert Fils Blanc de Blanc de Cremant 750mL
Country Hierarchy: Champagne, France
Blanc de Blancs is white Champagne made exclusively from white-wine grapes; the phrase Blanc de Blancs is French for "white of whites". It is, in one regard, the exact opposite of Blanc de Noirs.
The most commonly used variety in Blancs de Blancs wine is Chardonnay. This is hardly surprising, given Chardonnay's high status and popularity in the Champagne region. Less obvious, however, are the other four grape varieties that the appellation laws permit for use: Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Petit Meslier and Arbane.
