Conventional wisdom says to treat nonvintage sparkling wine as a fresh product, but when the wine is well made with long lees contact, it can continue to evolve and deepen. Past experience has proven that this wine can age beautifully for five or more years after disgorgement, becoming rounder and toastier. Made from 100 percent Chardonnay, hand-picked, which spent two years sur lattes. This bottle, disgorged in 2014, is indeed fresh right now, with glistering acidity and notes of green citrus and lime peel. For the price, it’s a terrific wine for anytime-celebrations, and pairs beautifully with fish, sushi, poultry, fresh cheese, and salads. In two to three years it’ll be ready for charcuterie, lighter meats, hard cheeses, pasta—the works. 12.5% abv | $25 (sample) | Imported by Palm Bay

Light yellow with tiny bubbles. Delicate toast and white flower aromas are followed by apple, mineral and toasted almond flavors. Nice acidity with a lingering, clean finish. Toasted oat aromas linger in the empty glass. Very complex. Enjoy this sparkler with food. Disgorged 2014.

Fantastic value. Rich brioche, silky mousse, some citrus. So much like champagne.

Crisp apple-y fruit and lively mousse, just a touch of toastiness. Fresh and tasty!

Drinks like good champagne. Unbelievable bang for the buck. $60.00 for the magnum.

Not very complex, but light, crisp & clean and paired beautifully with appetizers.
