This well-balanced and smooth wine is the debut California offering from French producer Pommery. Made from 96% Chardonnay and a dab of Pinot Noir, it carries aromas of toasted baguette and flowers, with crisp apple and white peach flavors on fine-beaded bubbles. The concentrated fruit amplifies on the palate and lingers on the finish. Editors' Choice
