Chamlija Blanc de Noirs Papaskarası 2017

Points : 7,5/10

Price : 55 TL

Chamlija Papaskarasi Blanc de noirs 2017 : Again a fantastic wine created by Chamlija winery! This white wine made with Papaskarasi red grape truly amazed me although my first experience of Blanc de Noirs (not from Chamlija) at Sommelier’s sélection was not a great memory.

The smell is very aromatic with aromas of white flowers, pear, apple and spices. In the mouth it’s even more surprising with flavours of cherry stem, apricot, orange confit, pepper and saffron in the finish.

This wine is round, fresh and crisp with a good acidity.

Not the kind of wine for an aperitif but more with some refined white meat or some grilled prawns, octopus or even some fish köfte.

This wine changed my mind about Blanc de noirs.

    I used this with ne in a class I taught and it was fantastic! I’m preparing for another event and would like to use it again but I only have 3 bottles left. I need six and can no longer find it for sale. Any ideas where I can get some? Thank you! Gary

    1. In Istanbul I think you should be able to find it in Dekante wine shop at Istiniye Park mall.

    2. You could contact the winery as well but they usually sell by 6 bottles as a minimum.
