They belong to the secret heroes of the international wine world: winemakers such as the quality-seeking Carlos Figueiredo, who esteems his birthplace Dão and the local terroir, but also produces wines at a global level. With his wines, wine lovers find the individuality that is often lost in times of increasing globalization of wine tastes: authentic, traditionally prepared wines with a radiant regional character, made from indigenous grape varieties in a limited edition.

The 2017 Espumante Blanc de Noir from Quinta da Falorca is very limited and short available and is made in a very limited edition. The Blanc de Noir is made following Method Tradionelle such as a good Cava or Champagne and is made from 50% Touriga Nacional and 50% Rufete. The grapes are hand picked and then stalked and the grapes are slightly bruised. The alcoholic fermentation is given at Falorca and takes about 30 days at a low temperature (12 degrees) in order to properly 'inject' the freshness and fruit into the must. The wine further ripens on its yeasts for more than 10 months and then remains in the wine cellars to get bottle aging. Of the 2017 Espumante Blanc de Noir, 1847 bottles were bottled at the end of March 2019. The wine is dry with residual sugar of less than 5 g. The wine has a very fine perlage with beautiful red fruit (cherry, raspberry) and a pleasant bitterness. This dry Portuguese champagne belongs to the top of Portugal in addition to the famous Espumante Extra Reserva and Price / Quality is unprecedentedly good. We dare to say without blushing that there are few or no champagnes in the 50-75 euro segment that are better and then we are talking about a beautiful blanc de Noir Espumante of less than 20 euros.
