Wine Review: This pale straw colored Champagne tied for first place in our first big blind tasting of sparklers. It opens with a mild dough like bouquet with a hint of apple and almond. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, and elegant. The flavor profile is a mild dough with hints of minerality and a touch of grapefruit and apple. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. Perfect for food and your anniversary dinner. The panel suggested pairing it with swordfish or oysters. Enjoy - KWGTP
