Nice crisp fruit. Very clean. Nutty notes make for a nice interesting bubbly.

Always pleasing. Does not have the depth of the vintages from the prestige houses, but then it is NV and priced accordingly.

Ethereally pale with fine-textured, quiet bubbles that spirit an intoxicating perfume of jasmine, yellow apple, pear, pistachio, biscuit, and flint. The wine’s smooth, creamy mousse flares open to reveal green apple, lime peel, crème frâiche, and pear nectar. This wine is intricate and ever-changing, shifting between toast and fruit, nut and flowers, bread and citrus—at once taut and delicately yielding. Give it some air and time, and let it carry you into the New Year, ringing. 80% pinot noir, 20% chardonnay 12% abv | $50 (media sample)

Good, not great. Bracing acidity, lots of green orchard and citrus fruit.
