Wine Review: The name says it all. From the first sniff to the last sip, the Collet Art Deco changes and evolves. This golden straw colored Champagne has notes of raisin, candied orange rinds, strawberries, apple-caramel, and toast with cinnamon right on the nose. Your first sip introduces you to the medium-sized bubbles that will be present throughout your experience. The palate consists of candied fruits like orange, raspberries, and starfruit. Additional notes of candied ginger and green tea leaves make up the middle, while a mouth-watering acidity rounds out the finish. I would recommend drinking it on its own as it doesn't need a food pairing, but a nice side of bay oysters would be sublime. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Collet Brut Art Deco has a bright crystal like appearance displaying a fine and elongated bead. It’s powerful, fruit driven nose with floral and mineral overtones are derived from the Chardonnay component. On the palate it has a high noted start with subtle richness and distinguished mid palate texture leading to a long and fresh finish. Serve chilled at 44-46°F with aperitifs. Pairs nicely with seafood, Mediterranean and Japanese dishes.
