a toast to the grandparents, my in laws, on their 2nd, baby Zoey! and that makes me a first time Uncle!
this bottle is so so so good. intense, beautiful nose of honey and apricots, and perhaps some pear. aromas jump out of the glass.
palate is delicate, honeyed, bready, a touch sweet, with a really punchy apple acid bite on the long, textured finish.
a perfect celebratory bottle 🥂🥂 — a month ago
The 2008 Brut Hyde has bursting aromas of fresh grapefruit and lime, followed by juicy pineapple. The fruitful nose is complemented by notes of warm bread dough and almond. On the palate, there are flavors of tangerine, lemon drop and kisses of under-ripe red berry. The wine finishes with elegant vitality, which is crisp, long and refreshing.
On a personal note, I drank the whole bottle in one sitting with some stale Skinny Pop last night and I feel great today! Cellar trackers says it was last due back in 2017 but this hardly tasted past peak. Easily my favorite sparkler from Hyde in Carneros when I usually prefer the Blanc de Blancs.
