Medium straw in colour with fine mousse & medium intensity on the nose.

Positives: My wife says it's yummy with delicious & a touch of tasty. I happen to agree. We also agree it's one of the best champagnes we've tasted. The nose has aromas of fresh baked bread, apple, ginger, jasmine, biscotti & wet stone. The taste shows macadamia nuts, lemon, apple crumble, strawberry/kiwi, tangerine and with a slight lemon peel & ginger on the finish. Medium body with good acidity & long finish.

Negatives: None.

Drink now on its own or with strawberries.

Tasted: 11 Jan 12
