Just an insinuation of darker fruits. That's what well done, pinot-driven Champagne gives you. Was surprised that...

The story of Chanukkah doesn't seem within the Torah as a result of the events that galvanized the vacation occurred when it absolutely was written. It is, however, mentioned within the testament, during which Christ attends a "Feast of Dedication." hanukkah 2016

Led by the Judaic priest Mattathias and his 5 sons, a large-scale rebellion skint out against Antiochus and therefore the Seleucid autocracy. once Matthathias died in 166 B.C., his son Judah, called Judah Maccabee (“the Hammer”),

Medium straw in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose & fine mousse.

The sports car of Champagnes; fast, lean, racy & easy to drink

Positives: This complex wine features light toast & yeast, guava, honeysuckle, pear, green apples, pistachio, tobacco, melba toast & icing sugar on the finish. Light to medium body with good acidity & a long length.

Negatives: $20 more expensive in Ontario than Florida.

Drink now or over the next 5 years on its own or pair it with raspberry point oysters.

Interesting Point: My wife’s go to Champagne, and if it were priced like Florida this would be a weekly staple.

Tasted: 5 January 2014

Top Pick

Score: 9.5/10, Value: 9/10 Total: 18.5/20

What a great way to start of my study of "Old World Wines" with a bottle of this bubbly.

Amona of fresh baked bread with a hint of minerality. Lots of mineral on the taste along with fresh bread, toast and lemon citrus.

A wonderful bubbly.

Enjoyed this at a wine tasting- LCBO Old World Wine appreciation course.
Very nice- Champagne is never my first choice. Nor is it my second, third fourth...
you get the picture.
But I really enjoyed this. Very clean on the palate. Fresh and citrus-forward.
