This wine does undergo Malo and this wine is aged in barrel and fermented and is aged on the lees for 7 years. A nice richness brioche and nutty quality with a rich creamy texture very rich with layers of flavors through the finish very long finish. Finish 45+ most excellent

Good and creamy Champagne , with nice notes of apple. But not exceptional, and too expensive.

A rich wine up front. It boasts the saltiness of fino sherry and rich, fat flavors of chassagne. Those lifted aromatics linger on the palate exquisitely.

Citrus blossom, chalk, custard, creme brûlée, pistachios, lemon pulp. Excellent acidity, light mousse, long bubbles, mouth watering savory finish.
