Pale rose gold with copious medium-coarse foam. Aromas of strawberries and mellon mingle with nutty toast; the wine spent one and a half years en tirage. It's coarse on the palate with flavors of strawberry and kiwi; fruit-driven and not very dry but its acidity is pleasant and balancing. The wine's lovely color derives from some cold-soaked vin gris of Pinot Noir added to the must. Overall it's a fun and quaffable. Drink it with salty snacks and cheeses. 92% Pinot Noir, 8% Chardonnay, 12.5% abv | $22 (sample)

Much needed bubbles today...lets get this party started ! Lovely. (Deb's word). Bubbly. (Nancy's word). Long. (Anna's word)... Lasts on the finish, makes me think creamy.... Vanilla and strawberry.

For the price...pretty delish. Reminds me more of a cava than traditional blanc de noirs. A well-made cava. Strawberry, tangerine, and citrus blossom, not much complexity but very gulpable

Pale gold color with brioche, red fruits, toast and vanilla aromas. Moderately creamy mousse and medium sized bubbles. On the palate its fruity with a pleasing acidity w/strawberry,raspberry and vanilla flavors. Lingering finish
