Simply stunning. 2012 on 11/2019. Can use lots more time. Today the acid / fruit and tannic structure scream $200 bottle. — 16 days ago
From half bottle...crushed cherries, licorice root, rose petal, slight cola notes. Smooth. — 16 days ago
Very nice mix of bright red and blue fruits, earthy elements, and minerality. Tug of war between light cola sweetness of smooth entry slight bitterness of a lengthy finish. Round but formidable tannins. Sumptuous yet refined.
The Alesia label is dedicated to estate grown fruits. For 2016, it’s a single vineyard bottling.

Very subtle bubbles in a mineral, flowery blanc de blancs with a great freshness and a lot of potential. This is a great sparkling in the making. Drink now to have an idea but give it 5 years at least to get more complexity out of this. Rhys is on a roll with great Pinot, Chard and Shiraz, plus now this outstanding sparkling. Enthusiastically recommended !!! — 16 days ago
