SEPPI 2017 Blanc de Blancs was produced in the traditional Champagne method. A base wine of 100% Chardonnay was fermented in 30% neutral french oak, 70% stainless steel before tirage bottling in April 2018. The wine aged in bottle for 19th months on lees before disgorging in October 2019 with a dosage of 3g/L.

Occasion

This was Kelsey’s favorite wine this year to drink with Thanksgiving dinner. The rich texture and California fruit flavors balance perfectly with the vibrant acidity, lending to a wine that complements a range food (from turkey, stuffing and cranberries to curried butternut squash soup) while not overpowering any of them. The tropical notes in the Blanc de Blanc also make it fabulous pairing with Asian foods.

    I couldn’t do any better than the description of the Blanc de Blancs, so if that sounds delightful for you, I’d highly recommend this delicious sparkling wine. It’s light, dry and elegant — just like my favorite people! I dare say that I found it more appealing than Veuve.

    I live in France and have never been able to convince my French colleagues that California Sparkling is even better than French champagne… until I served this Blanc de blancs at a dinner party. The guests were blown away. Cheers to Seppi.

  3. Jean-Pierre du Mertueil

    As an American living abroad, I have struggled to convince my acquaintances of the merits of California wines. All of that has changed with the arrival of Seppi. I served this at a cocktail to rave reviews. Even the Italians were fans – a must try !

    Seppi Wines is such a delight to enjoy and share with friends over a lovely meal or on its own. The Blanc de Blanc is extraordinary paired with food. I enjoyed it with Burmese and it was perfection. The Rose is so light, elegant and beautiful it goes great with food as well but also is wonderful on its own. These wines are amazing, so beautifully crafted with wonderful balance and I love the branding and most importantly, the story behind the brand. Supporting small businesses is so important these days so kudos Kelsey on this amazing new brand you’ve created. I can’t wait for my next shipment to arrive. Bravo!

  5. Chris Itteilag

    A true Masterpiece! This first vintage of Seppi Blanc de Blancs is incredibly smooth, refreshing and drinkable, yet highly sophisticated. Phelps really hit this one out of the park. Cheers!

    What a compelling (and at the same time daunting) inaugural effort by Ms Phelps and winemaker, Mr Hock. This Blanc de blanc finds a balanced home in the realm of austerity and minerality, a place usually found in the small villages southeast of Epernay. Joseph would be so proud…..
