Wine Review: This straw colored Champagne with tiny bubbles won our first blind tasting of Champagnes and sparkling wines. This wine opens with a mild bread dough bouquet with hints of green melon, walnut and honey. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, silky and elegant. The flavor profile is a refined minerality with notes of green apple and a hint of white pepper. The finish is dry and fades away nicely. The panel suggested that this delicious Champagne would pair well with grilled halibut or seared tuna steak. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: All the lightness of white floral notes: hawthorn blossom, linden blossom and white clover. A fresh, stylish wine with good structure, silky and elegant, based on the mineral notes of the best Chardonnay Grand Crus. The floral, fruity notes give way to subtle spicy hints for a pleasant finish on the palate.
