Description | Details | Rating

The nose is moderately intense yet complex. The sweet pastry, biscuit and orchard fruit notes are followed and enhanced by hints of citrus, white flowers and fresh butter. The initial taste is clean: this is a very silky and sparkling wine whose sugar content works well with its body. There is a certain chalky minerality and the texture is smooth. It is characterful without being overbearing. The finish is crisp, with a slight mineral undertone, and long at 6 to 8 seconds. It leaves an excellently balanced acidic aftertaste, with a sugar component that is undeniably pleasing on the palate.

"A chalky Champagne, mouthwatering and fruit-forward, with crushed blackberry and black cherry fruit alongside toasted almond, candied ginger, lemon meringue and verbena notes. A crowd-pleaser, showing expression and harmony. Drink now through 2020.

"A seamless, harmonious blend based on pinot meunier, this has gingery flavors layered with citrus pith and white fruit. It opens with air, long and integrated. Delicious with sushi."
