Lemon scone - a beautifully fresh and yeasty nose.
Asian pear, curd, apricot acidity. Bubbles that are tight, uniformed, yet take a little bit of air to settle it down enough to not be as foamy, and easier to drink. The age on this has done no harm. Amazing.

Paired with vegan Fried Chicken from Atlas-Monroe. Significant mousse. An absolutely gorgeous wine with a powerful mix of citrus and tropical fruits yet finishes utterly dry (this is Brut Nature after all) with a fascinating touch of salinity that charms the senses. I loved how this wine accurately represents the ripeness of the vintage and yet the character of Vertus is omnipresent. What a fantastic Champagne and one I would love to revisit down the road a ways.

Toasty, marmalade, touch of vegemite with lashings of stone fruit. Complex, fresh. Palate is amazing. Shame I shared it with the staff. Awesome as always

Champagne 4 of 4 and fourth place in the tasting. Very clear consensus this Champagne had minimal characteristics and ultra fine bubbles. Didn’t seem to excite anyone (including myself). Maybe a defect?

Brilliantly balanced and delicious wine. Buttery texture with notes of brioche and marzipan
