Notas en nariz de oxidación y notas muy minerales, olor a fósforo muy potente. En boca muy peculiar entrada y paso ligero y agradable. Muy reducido @La Taberna Bonhomme necesitaba aireación...

We don’t often drink vintage bubbles. But when we do, it’s on sale.

2013 vintage. Grapefruit, lemon zest, toasted baguette. Slightly yeasty. Lovely effervescence. 12.5 ABV.

Singular flavor profile, but nice weight and finish. Simple but lush QPR Vouvray.

Nice grape fruit, pineapple, and lemongrass on the palate. Dry, sexy, and nice dancing of soft bubbles. Like it.

Gorgeous, deep golden color with small soft bubbles. Bright and airy on the nose with just the softest hints of brioche, lemon and peach. Crisp, bright and creamy on the palate with a great mousse texture. Surprisingly fresh flavors of peach, tangerine and lemon lead to just a touch of brioche and a big burst of crisp acidity. The finish is long and creamy with lingering bubbles dancing on the tongue.
