A clean and precise nose of grapefruit, dough and a whiff of yeast. Palate displays close to neutral oak, honey, grapefruit and citrus notes, complimented by white flowers and granite. Cuts through the fat of the truffle-infused burrata perfectly. This has inserted itself as our house bubbly.

Oh man...star fruit, white peach, lemon zest...a blast of minerals and a kiss of brioche. A really killer NV BdB.

Lemon peel, croissant, toasty deliciousness. Great acidity and lingering finish. A great kick off to a Chardonnay tasting!

Toasted brioche, peaches, vanilla, and a creamy texture that screams Ruinart.

Lemon chiffon, lime zest, canned pineapple, bruised golden apples, citrus blossoms, a touch of orange peel, beautiful, soft refined sandy chalkiness, soft minerality and an excellent round, rich finish with crisp acidity. At Top of the World Sydney!

My favorite NM Champagne. Expressive, richly aromatic, and down right sexy. Fresh brioche, custard, toasted hazelnuts, apple blossoms, poached golden apple, vanilla, meyer lemon, salty earth.
