    The Schloss Gobelsburg BLANC DE BLANCS style is on one side marked by the vineyards of the Danube region and their grape varieties (Grüner Veltliner, Welschriesling, Chardonnay). On the other side is the character marked by the vinification in barrels made of Austrian oak trees. Grapes are harvested at the optimal moment, transported in small boxes and are immediately pressed, whereby only the heart of the must is used. After six months of cask storage, it is bottled for the second fermentation. It matures for between 2,5 and 3 years on the lees, allowing the wine to develop a beautiful creamy texture, until it is hand riddled and then disgorged.
    ROBERT PARKER - The Wine Advocate, 12/21 week 2: rating 93 Based on the 2017 vintage and dosed as brut in March 2020, the NV Blanc de Blancs is a cuvée of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Welschriesling, all fermented in 5,000-liter oak vats. The intensely yellow-colored wine offers a very rich and intense nose of ripe fruits with buttercup, grassy and flinty notes, from a bigger glass with more refreshing citrus and intense brioche aromas. Fresh on the palate, this is an elegant, stunningly pure and stimulating sparkling wine that is less opulent than the nose. The wine is vital and lemony on the finish, revealing a firm structure and fine grip. Tasted at Schloss Gobelsburg in June 2021. WINE ENTHUSIAST, tasting 12/01/2020: rating 92 A flinty sense of reduction is soon followed by creamy, smoky notions of Mirabelle plum on the nose. The palate remains taut and carries the smoky fruit aloft on its myriad creamy bubbles. Tautness and freshness are key on this wonderfully austere and grown-up Sekt. Lemony briskness, autolytic depth and smoldering smokiness make for a great trio.

A real standout. Drink 2017-2022.
