Wine Review: A rich and lively French Champagne. It is a pale golden yellow color with plenty of small streaming bubbles. The bouquet includes toasted brioche, almonds, nectarine, a chalky note and some light jasmine and lily florals. Moderately frothy, slightly creamy, dry, and refreshing on the palate. It is medium bodied, with crisp acidity, some complexity and good balance. There are flavors of lemon-lime, green apple, stony minerality and ginger, along with notes of apricot and brioche. The finish is mineral driven, quite long, and mouthwatering. It could be sipped on its own or serve with a hot buttered lobster roll. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: Sight: Pale golden color. Fine persistent bubbles.
Smell: Delicate nose, very fresh, lovely complexity.
Taste: Fresh and supple on the palate. The first impression is of fresh green apples with a hint of white flowers and hazelnuts. Well balanced and good length. Wine & Food Pairings: Perfect as an aperitif. This cuvee is a wonderful match for white meat in a cream sauce or veal with a julienne of vegetables.
