Description

Isabella “Ivy” Elizabeth was a noblewoman in 15th century France. She immersed herself in the diplomatic and political culture of court life and was instrumental in arranging powerful marriages for members of the French court. However, throughout her tenure as a noblewoman, she maintained an ardent appreciation for art, poetry, and fine wine. After her retirement from the court, Isabella spent her final years in a secluded château enjoying wines of France. As a pure Blanc de Blancs, Ivy honors her namesake as a beautiful expression of French sparkling wine. It is made with 100% of the richest French Chardonnay grapes that offer a luxurious experience for those who exist to be remarkable. This beautifully balanced Blanc de Blancs is simply delightful on the palate with its pleasing minerality, well-rounded elegance, and finishes with great length and persistence. On the nose, it is fragrant with white blossom, citrus, and green apple, and over time, the aromas evolve into vibrant notes of stone fruit, apricot, and peaches. It has vigorous sparkle and light, and a refreshing style.

THE WINERY

Nicolas Vins Selections

Maison Nicolas Vins is an artisanal, family-owned winery in France. It is based in the heart of the southern Rhône valley, in the roman city of Orange. Due to the warmer temperatures in the region and the frequent “mistral” winds, the grapes are harvested during the cool nights to maintain freshness.

By delicately coaxing out the best elements of the land, the climate, and the grape varietals used, Nicolas Vins offers wines with unique characteristics that perfectly represent Rhône.
