«A white made from black grapes», Blanc der Noir tends to be stronger and more complex, yet as elegant as a Blanc de Blancs. Also known as «BdN», it is made purely from the two red grape varieties, Pinot Noir or Pinot Meunier, or an assemblage of the two. The other five grape varieties permitted in Champagne are white.

The trick lies in the «vinification»: the grapes are pressed extremely gently, the juice is separated from the dark skins as quickly as possible, and thus remains light.
