Wine Review: This Champagne is pale straw colored and displays tiny streaming bubbles. It opens with a golden apple and yeast like bouquet with hints of peach, lemon and pineapple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and displays nice bright acidity. The flavor profile is a mineral infused walnut with notes of aged green apple. We also picked up some hint of flaky croissant and lemon meringue. The finish is dry and very refreshing. The Panel suggested pairing it with roasted Cornish hen or chicken scampi. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This Champagne teases and allures us with its festive, light-drenched, pale gold shimmer and joyful display of neat, lively bubbles. Notes of almond and fresh hazelnut accompany the precise ascent of its bubbles. It is lively, subtle and light, leaving a deliciously incisive sensation of smoothness, marked by the pureness of fresh pear and apple and a delicate hint of citrus fruits. A harmonious mixture of bright, crunchy pomelo, blonde grapes and juicy white fruits creates the delightfully surprising sensation of lightness embraced by the structure and depth from the Pinot Noir; all beautifully balanced.
