Amazing consistency, oxidative notes with apricots and apple cider. On the palate, green apples , sherry notes and citrus zest. What separated the bottles were the various levels of freshness. All were enjoyable but none had that “wow” factor. My rating is a composite.

Special Cuvée Brut Champagne Blend

First time pairing champagne and steak and yes, certainly works for me. Subtle and elegantly accentuates the creaminess on the palate. — 15 days ago
