Really sweet, delicious and bright. Lemon, corn, light honey, gorgeous detailed acidity. Lush and vibrant and long.

Fantastic stuff. Bright, driving acidity and fresh lemon. Minerality and dazzling fruit. Great stuff.

Classic Cristal with Fine bead, lovely aroma of brioche, baked apple and almond and a from palate with crisp acidity, lemon shortbread, brioche and a hint of hazelnut. The cépage is 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay but it is the Chardonnay that gives the wine its propulsion. Still youthful and vibrant with
stunning length.

The 2007 is stellar. Ample and expansive on the palate, the 2007 is pure class. Loved it.

Russian Tzars did a few things right. Great since 1876

Simple, with a fairly lacklustre palate. What a shock! Glad I wasn't the one paying 280 bucks for it...
