Wine Review: This sparkler was the most interesting entry in our recent blind tasting. It was also the most expensive offering as well. It split the panel in two, like no other wine I can remember. The men liked it and the women did not prefer its style. This pale yellow colored Champagne with tiny bubbles opens with an attractive pie crust like bouquet with hints of apple cider. On the palate is where the lines were drawn. It was medium bodied, rich and balanced. The flavor profile was a concentrated honey and apricot with hints of dates and caramel. Its style leaned towards aged white wines. The finish was rather dry and showed some length. Enjoy - KWGTP
