Gorgeous yeasty lemony nose. Very clean. Juicy and lively with lovely lemon drop and Meyer Lemon sweetness. Really complex. Nice lean structure and minerality and terrific energy. Great showing.

Did not pay much attention on Day 1. Was nice and round on day 1. Beautiful freshness and purity with nice green Apple.

On day 2 a bit more lean and elegant. Mineral wafting nose, lots of intense minerals and yeastiness on the palate. Very juicy and clean. Lovely mineral finish with sneaky persistence.

First wine from latest batch. Love 2008 and really am more and more impressed with this estate. Gorgeous, elegant nose of yeasty mineral laden goodness. Palate is like a cloud with beautiful, tangy citrus fruit, yeasty BDB goodness and wonderful finesse. Terrific wine.

This is 2008 NOT 2007. Old label. Mineral and yeasty with nice mellow but forceful aromas. If that makes sense. Elegant.

Primarily citrus fruit on the nose with little autolytic character. Mousse dissipates quickly. Dry, crisp, and focused on the palate with only 12% alcohol. Base wine made from 100% Chardonnay fermented in oak barrels with only partial malolactic fermentation. Bargain at $40 for grower champagne.

Love the nose. Great balance on the palate with nice creaminess and a tart patting shot on the finish. Bought from Fass selections.
