Wine Review: In the glass this charming Chardonnay focused French Champagne is a light golden color with plenty of tiny streaming bubbles. The vibrant bouquet includes brioche, green apple, nectarine, perfumed florals, and lemon zest aromas. There is nice froth on the palate, which is dry, medium-plus bodied, well balanced, textured and refreshingly acidic. There are flavors of apple, white pepper, lemon-lime, and saline. The finish has a chalky note, and the fruit lingers for quite a while. Perfect to start a holiday celebration or pair with lobster mac and cheese. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: This wine has a subtle, pale gold color with fine, persistent bubbles. It is delicate, with aromas of peach, white flowers, vanilla pod, and brioche on the nose and flavors of fresh fruit and honey on the palate.
