Wine Review: This is as clean of a Champagne as it comes. For some, it might be too light but this is a blast from the past and what Champagne used to be like. The small bubbles lead to a nice mineral based palate with hints of bay leaf and evergreen. Higher in acidity than most Champagnes but this adds to the wine's overall appeal. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: The color is golden pale yellow, crystal-clear, and very luminous; the train of bubbles is long and lively. It opens on a very fruity bouquet of white-flesh fruits such as pear and yellow peach. It offers delicate touches of hawthorne, mint and green tea. It then develops on more slightly toasted brioche. On the palate, it coats the mouth but remains fresh, smooth and delicate with a long lasting. Definitely a wine for aperitif, dedicated to finger food; easy drinking and light.
