Natalie's Score: 90/100

Floral, lime blossom, pretty: lots of acidity for food, medium-bodied. This isn't Champagne, but is made using the same methods of production with a second fermentation in the bottle to trap the bubbles, and based on Chardonnay grapes. Pair with fried chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

Courtney Flood rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Very soft and pretty sparkling. White grapefruit, lemon, sea salt, orange blossom water and sweet cream. Fine mousse. Sweeter than expected in the mouth; lemon cream.

Pair with: starter salad of arugala, avocado, citrus and feta.
Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Intriguing mineral, honeyed, apricot and autolytic notes on the nose. Fine, persistent mousse. Creamy and layered with sweet, honeyed fruit lingering on the finish. A great value alternative to pricier bubbles.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A refreshing, zippy brut which is designed for pleasure. Tight bubbles, great acidity, a brilliant platinum sparkling non-vintage brut. Green apple, lime zest aromatics. A crowd pleaser offering great value. Great for seasonal festivities. Pairs well with turkey dinner, appetizers, brunch or on its own. Tasted Nov 2016 - rated 88 / 100
Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Nice bubbly from the Loire area. Chenin blanc dominant with cab franc and Chardonnay. Nice aromas of croissant and green apple. Great sparkling wine. A little short but at that price... I had it with lucky lime oysters from PEI and it was delicious.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Uber floral and refreshing. Crisp tangy notes of apple, lemon, and underripe peach dominate the palate. It's an easy drinking, light bodied, patio sipper kind of wine at a great price point. Enjoy with crispy baja fish tacos. Tasted Nov 2016 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Great price point for a sparkling wine from France. Toast, red apple, apricot on the nose with toast and apple on the palate. Vibrant and enjoyable. Tasted April 3rd, 2016.
