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

🏅 Rating 87+/100 (3,75🌟)

Bit of toast, apples, citrus, yeasty. Steely mineral. Quite edgy, because of recent disgorgement.

This NV is on par with many basic NV Champagnes I can think of. And even maybe leaving those Traditional Bruts behind.

I like this one is Blanc de Blancs. Value for the money is crazy and leaving no choice for the alternative at this price tag.
