Rococo combines the French word rocaille (shell) with the Italian barocco (Baroque) and is the name given to the highly decorative art and design of 18th Century Europe which incorporated shell motifs. Rococo sparkling wines are generous European style sparkling wine with similar curves and detail. The packaging also reflects the Rococo style.
A complex Blanc de Blancs style with lots of lees creating a creamy texture with plenty of characters.

"Produced from 100% Chardonnay, the NV Rococo Blanc De Blanc has a moderate intensity of peach blossom, lemon curd and jasmine aromas with a whiff of mandarin peel. Light to medium bodied, dry and crisp with a touch of sweetness to balance (10.6 grams / liter of residual sugar), it has a good amount of medium sized bubbles and a medium-long, straightforward finish."
Rating 86 - Lisa Perotti-Brown MW, eRobertParker (JUN/2011)
"This is the white version of the excellent rosé style. It's blanc de blancs which means it is from white grapes. Textured and soft, it has been deliberately made to a style for easy current drinking. Works for me."
