Pale light gold color. Constant and plentiful fine tiny bubbles. Has a nose that makes me think of fruit mousse. Notes of lemon, macadamia nuts, chalk and some lemon creme. Crisp in the mouth. Amazing mouth feel. Great stuff.

Leesy butterscotch and citrus pith wet stones and a hint of wet wool.

From magnum. Laser-like focus. Bright, juicy lemon and lime with oyster shell and crushed rock. Amazing energy. Long, powerful finish.

So fine, stony but light and delicate. Candidate for the best 02.

Pure. Gorgeous Leeziness. Brioche, almond, lemon meringue. Precise and linear. Gorgeous acidity.
