Wine Review: This straw colored Champagne was one of our top scoring wines in our recent big blind tasting. It opens with a vanilla and light dough bouquet with hints of caramelized apple and faint oak. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, elegant and smooth. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused green apple with hints of lemon verbena, pineapple and toasty oak. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. The panel suggested pairing this very nice Champagne with smoked Gouda. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Experience a fully developed wine, with a radiant bouquet that is captivating yet subtle. Although notes of fully ripe fruit, such as nectarines and cherry plums, are apparent initially, the finish reveals the wealth of the gourmet world, hinting at nougat, honey and cereal grains.
