Ok, so for those that don't know about Franciacorta, it is one of Italy's best-kept secrets. If Prosecco is an inexpensive alternative to Champagne, Franciacorta is the real deal. Which is why it is so reassuringly expensive. However, in our humble opinion, it beats the pants off most "average" Champagnes and has loads more character to boot. This version is from one of the top producers, 1701, and is a creamy, brioche laden blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It has a lovely racy, zippy lemon fruit, with a touch of crunchy apples, a light persistent mousse, and a deliciously creamy close. All in all, delightful and classy.
