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.

Monique Sosa 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

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
