Definitely my new favorite champagne. I’ve had two different times now and both times have turned my head and made me think about it for days after. So much complexity and purity here - toasty creamy mousse, meyer lemon sorbet, overripe apricot and marmalade, hint of clove and banana bread, honeysuckle and honey too. The aromatics are haunting. Beautiful texture. It’s got it all.

Superb #Champagne. Refreshing and pleasing.

Very focused with an amazing golden color. Flowers and citrus come off the wine with a little honey. Breaded.

Dry fruit of apricot on the palate with minerals running parallel. Fine bubbles and soft honey, cream.

Opened 2/17/16

Comes at you from the glass with a nutty smell. Again with a creaminess that you don't normally find. Low acid on the back

Little cheese rind in the nose with green apple aromas. So creamy - almost tastes flat then then bubbles come back and the acidity grabs you.

Chalky and clean with bright apple and grape flavors.
