Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A pleasant summer brunch sparkling wine. The aromas are mild but the palate packs more character. Notes of citrus peel, blossoms, and spice take the reigns. The mouthfeel is refershing and the finish is crips but with a lingering baking spice note in the finish (all spice). Enjoy with bacon frittatas. Tasted May 2016 - @sommsosa @bespoketastings
Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Reserved bouquet of lemon, brioche, and apple segue into a refreshing, lemon, toast on the palate, this quite dry, sparkling wine had surprisingly few bubbles in the glass and yet a moderate lemon, yeasty finish. It has a moderate amount of palate cleansing acidity and would pair well with a variety of foods. I'd pair it with sushi.

This wine won a Silver Medal at the 2015 Concours Général Agricole in Mâcon. This dry French sparkling wine is made with 100% Chenin Blanc grapes in Méthode Traditionnelle style. - Community Wine Reviews
