Wine Details

Pours a beautiful straw yellow with hints of green and noticeable, dominating bubbles that subside into continual activity in the glass. You're greeted with fresh bread dough on the front, followed by almonds and hazelnuts that further develop into apple skins on the back end. Although the name Satén is Galician (and Turkish, Czech) for Satin, it's a perfect description of the mouthfeel for this wine, and also the indicator that you have a pristine Blanc de Blanc in front of yourself. 100% Chardonnay, beautifully clean and refreshing on the palate, with a dry, crisp finish reintroducing the apple and almond expressions.

This sparkling wine was very light and dry. While it wasn't my favorite - a little too light for me, it was enjoyable nonetheless.

I don’t drink a lot of sparkling wine, but when I do this is the stuff I’m after. The label says pure Chardonnay but grown in Italy, not the first grape I think of when I think of Italian wine. And 24 months on its lees, no wonder it opens with a wonderful smell of yeast, a sine qua non for a sparkling white as far as I’m concerned. Unlike most still Chardonnay, this is dry, bone dry, moon rock dry. Really splendid stuff. I’m ordering another case.
