Review date: October 24, 2015

Wine Review: This almost clear colored Champagne is very traditional in style. It opens with a wet stone and green apple bouquet with hints of toast. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and fresh. The flavor profile is a bread dough and toast blend with notes of minerality and Key limes. The finish is dry and refreshing. The panel said this Champagne was well made. We suggested pairing it with bruchetta. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Appearance: The colour is a pure, bright straw yellow with copper glints. The delicate, lingering froth forms a fine creamy ring. Fragrance: Open on the nose. The first expression is of floral aromas and notes of dried flowers. The aromatic range reveals fruitier fragrances such as white peach and Mirabelle plum. Notes of hazelnut and praline develop at the finish. Taste: The attack is fresh and strong, then the wine reveals its full roundness, structure and smoothness. Notes of fresh fruit, apricot, pineapple and vineyard peach. The long, racy finish promises a bright future for this elegant, classy wine.

Organic status: not organic
