Gruet Blanc de Noirs

"A Rosé by Any Other Name: Gruet Blanc de Noirs' Radiant Refinement"

History and Pedigree:

The Gruet Blanc de Noirs, a testament to the Gruet Winery's pioneering spirit, marks a chapter of continued excellence in sparkling wine production. Following the triumph of their inaugural Brut, the winery introduced this exquisite Blanc de Noirs NV in 1990, embracing the Pinot Noir grape's potential to craft a sparkling wine of unparalleled elegance. Originating from a lineage steeped in the champagne tradition of Bethon, France, the Gruet family's journey from European roots to the unique terroir of New Mexico has yielded a sparkling wine that speaks volumes of their passion and expertise.

Production Highlights:

The Gruet Blanc de Noirs embodies the meticulous Méthode Champenoise, which showcases the Pinot Noir varietal's depth and versatility. This non-vintage wine is a harmonious blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, gently pressed to extract the pristine juice without imparting the skin's color. Aging on lees adds complexity and a creamy texture, while the careful balance of fruit, minerals, and acidity results in a sparkling wine that is both full-bodied and refreshingly crisp.
