Wine Review: This pale yellow colored champagne with tiny bubbles opens with a fragrant and attractive light apple bouquet with floral notes and a hint of honey. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and very elegant. The flavor profile is a very tasty delicate lemon with a touch of dough and minerality. The finish is dry and drifts away nicely. The panel suggested pairing this Champagne with strawberries or sushi. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This wine is powerful but not aggressive, with an agreeable freshness, a supple roundness on the palate and a clean and fruity finish. Pleasant and well-balanced with a light golden color, this wine is mature and ready to drink immediately. The bouquet has a hint of citrus, white flowers and lemon peel. The Brut is delicious as an aperitif, and equally delightful with a fruit dessert.
