Beautiful balance of fruit and minerality with just a hint of cream. Great acidity and mouth feel.

Has some rich, exotic character almost indicative of some botrytis fruit.

Light, refreshing, dry as a bone. Not a lot of complexity, but I'd imagine this being one of the greatest sushi wines in the market.

Nice sparking. Bright and clean. Bit of Granny Smith apple and great acidity.

Powerful acidity, mineral driven, like drinking drinking contact solution (in the best possible way)

Wonderfully balanced nice mineral notes a touch of stone fruit and creaminess. Would be an amazing paired with salmon or other fish with a nice oil content.

After a decade of stalking this man’s chasselas I was so thrilled to see he does a crémant. Musk, white peach, honey, and funk on the nose and palate, crisp with a long mineral and earthy finish. What’s not to love? At $27 I am really going to be skipping the champers and reaching for this more often.
