Notes from Blue House Wines:

The two words that best describe Cave Mont Blanc Glacier: pristine fragility. Prié Blanc is an uncommon grape and there is very little to compare it to. However, in Champagne we look for freshness, purity and mineral. There are high levels of all of these in this dry, sparkling white wine.  ​

On top of that, you are drinking wine from the highest vineyards in Europe.  Prié Blanc is the only variety that will grow at altitudes up to 4200 feet (1300 m). Even the pest Phylloxera will not survive this high up, so vines grow on their own rootstock. Grape growing is difficult here and most growers only own a tiny piece of land. 80 growers contribute to the wine, and the co-op is responsible for keeping the wine-making tradition alive. Their devotion to winemaking shows in Cave Mont Blanc Glacier, a superior example of dry, sparkling white wine.
