This is great - punchy plum, raspberry, pepper, menthol and tobacco spice aromas. On the palate crunchy, sweet cherry fruit and pleasant tannin with a waft of smoke. Good length and moreish. — 5 months ago

Intense effervescence that stimulates taste buds across the entire mouth. A bit bitter on its own with grapefruit accents, pairs and balances nicely with raspberry and strawberry fruit and soft, creamy Brie-like heavy mold rind cheese. — 5 months ago

Nice golden colour. Nose muted at the beginning with some shy pear, a whiff of shortbread, grated lemon peel. Very clear & pure.
On the palate this shows a lovely creamy mouthfeel with super fine froth, the acidity (non dosé) keeping the wine fresh and lively. I love the structure & the vibrancy paired with the creaminess. There’s not much fruit here, a hint of yellow pear & yellow plum, but a solid mineral backbone.
This is much better from a large glass vs a flute and works really well with food.
Much more a proper wine vs just a bubbly. Complex & quite serious. — 3 months ago
I had the 2019 vintage, not 2009, but fount it to be delightful. Crisp with notes of grapefruit and oak. Simply lovely. — 5 months ago
