5 cases produced

Highlights

  • An elegant, sophisticated and refreshing late-disgorged Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine
  • Crafted by director of winemaking Stephanie Putnam and proprietor Jean-Charles Boisset
  • 100% Chardonnay from a single vineyard in the cool Los Carneros nested appellation of Napa Valley, aging for five years
  • Lively flavors of poached pear and key lime are layered with notes of brioche and a touch of honey

We are stepping into 2022 with a delightfully refreshing late-disgorged sparkling wine from the Los Carneros nested appellation of Napa Valley, made specifically for Premiere Napa Valley. Harvested from a single vineyard in 2017, a year that was known for its extreme conditions while producing elegant grapes with complex flavors, this Blanc de Blancs is an enhanced edition of the sparkling wine available only at our tasting room. Due to the proximity to the San Pablo Bay, the winds provide a long, cool growing season that highlights the grape’s natural acidity. Aging for five years, the result is an elegant and sophisticated late-disgorged sparkling wine with lively flavors of poached pear, key lime and orange blossom with layers of brioche and honeysuckle.

Jean-Charles Boisset

Winemaker, Raymond Vineyards

Winemaker, Jean-Charles Boisset

Jean-Charles Boisset serves as president of Boisset Family Estates, one of the world’s leading family-owned wine companies, with wineries in Burgundy, Beaujolais, the Rhone Valley, the South of France, and expertise in French sparkling wines. Boisset’s August 2009 purchase of Raymond Vineyards expanded the company’s footprint in the New World, which already included properties in Canada and California’s Russian River Valley, making it one of the top 25 producers in the US.

Jean-Charles has been vital to the family firm’s expansion through organic growth and by building a collection of wineries that fit the family’s vision and share its values. He instituted the concept of the “viniculteur,” which redefined the company’s traditional role to encompass a closer, more active interest in all aspects of winegrowing to ensure sustainable farming practices and premium quality.

Integral to Jean-Charles’ long-term vision has always been a dedication to innovation and the environment, which is reflected in the organic and Biodynamic farming techniques that have been implemented at Boisset’s wineries, as well as alternative packaging to reduce environmental impact.
