Tremendous value for artisanal Champagne with world-class terroir. Loaded with chalk!

A blend of 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, with full malolactic fermentation. Fruit aromas with floral and biscuit scents. On the palate peach and red berry flavors with tangy citrus. Smooth lingering finish ending with chalky mineral tones. Good value.

Nice drinking, crowd-pleasing wine. A vinous undertone with a verve.

A good value, but I was struck by discordant baked bread and lemon meringue notes. A little more integration on the palate would be an improvement.
