Nicely complex and intense aromatics, with abundant yeasty-toasty-brioche aromas to underscore the traditional method...

Super value; classy bubbles! This 100% chardonnay sparkler sports a very creamy, shortbread, almond and apple pie...

Medium+ straw colour with fine mousse and a medium+ intensity on the nose.

Positives: Absolutely delightful. Notes of yeast, brioche, light toast, granny apples, lemon, orange & limestone.

Negatives: None.

Interesting Point: This bubbly taste closer to $100 Champagne.

Drink now on its own or pair it with caviar.

Tasted: 25 Mar 12
