Wine Review: This pale straw colored Champagne with very fine bubbles was a top finisher in our Big Blind Tasting. It opens with a pleasant mild pear bouquet with hints of sour dough, fig, and flowers. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a mineral infused apple with notes of toasty oak, vanilla, and a touch of bread dough. The finish is dry and its finish is very nicely extended. The Panel suggested pairing this very nice Champagne with spring rolls or shortbread. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Appearance: color with golden hues dotted with fine bubbles. Nose: Smoky, vanilla, with sweet brioche and nut aromas. Taste: Light wine, air, a rare delicacy and surprising length. Serve chilled at 7-8° C. This exceptional Champagne is definitely a great meal wine. It can be served with fish and agrees particularly well with poultry and other white meats. It may also be associated with some amazing cheeses.

Organic status: not organic
