The Armit brand is a Blanc de Blancs made for them by Boizel in Epernay. This has all the lift and elegance of much grander Blanc de Blancs and matures gracefully, becoming more creamy after one year and a little nutty after two, but never losing freshnes
When first poured this wine offers up plenty of blackberry jam and liquorice aromas with lovely pepper and spice flavours. Huge on the palate, this Zinfandel has the concentration and ripe, soft tannins to see it easily through the next five years.
