Natalie's Score: 94/100
Superb, toasty and robust sparkling wine with zesty notes of green apple and baked bread. Complex and layered, yet with a mature nuance that makes this Champagne fascinating and so different from the Non-Vintage variety. Pair with holiday dinners and gift giving.
Champagne food pairings: pasta with cheese-based sauce, caviar, lobster thermidore, sushi..

Full and gorgeous, creamy mousse, nuts and brioche with a long toasty and citrusy finish. Share with your favourite people!
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
This is an exceptionally complex vintage Champagne which is sure to please. Offering freshly Baked tart-lemon brioche, minerality, a hint of honeydew melon and citrus peel on the palate. Refreshing vibrant acidity, fine bubbles, crisp and refreshing with a long finish and persistence of lemon tart and wet limestone. Pair this with anything or enjoy on its own. A perfect bubbly candidate for a #saberchallenge , generous with aromatics and flavour with a gorgeous mouthfeel. @jonsteeves rated 93/100 - tasted Oct 2016 - www.bespoketastings.ca

You smell the lees in this creamy Champagne. On the nose, there is rich buttery croissant aromas, as well as baked apple and lots of minerality. On the palate, it is opulent and buttery yet crisp with its bright acidity and fine bubbles. In terms of flavours, we have Granny Smith apple, lemon and mineral notes. Very yummy!

Fresh, creamy and complex. This Champagne shows dominant notes of green apple, citrus, brioche, and minerality. It is a touch lighter than expected (medium-light bodied), but it's flavourful and crisp. Enjoy with worthiest of company. Tasted Oct 16. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Pale yellow sparkling wine with aromas of apricot, lemon, white flowers, honey, biscuit, and salt. Lots of fine bubbles, racy acidity and bright flavours of lemon and apricot. The lemon in the finish lingers for ages.
Pair with friends, or keep it all to yourself.

Aromas of biscuit, citrus and honey. The palate really brings out lemon biscuit flavors that linger on through the smooth finish. Open this for a special occasion.
