This seafood-friendly Blanc de Blancs is a study in contrasts, both crisp and citrusy and creamy and honeyed. The result is an elegant, pure and festive sparkler, perfect for special occasions such as presenting a "ring" or toasting the arrival of the weekend with friends. Pair it with oysters or smoked salmon canapés.
