This traditional method sparkler from Luxembourg certainly over delivers for the price. Great texture and intensity...

This is a little funky on the nose, with aromatics reminiscent of mushrooms, wet concrete and drain pipe, while fruit...

Almost tastes demi-sec. Richly textured with notes of melon and leaning towards tropical flavours. Touch of sweetness...

All sparkling at the SAQ is not the same. I always explain badly the popularity of it. The fruity nuances show some...

I tasted this in September and was so pleased for the price. Green apple, pear, citrus, biscuit and a hint of nuttiness.

Good quality, great value traditional sparkler. Pleasant and fruity aromatics of baked lemon pie, yellow apple and pear. Steady, consistent and fine mousse persist on the glass with a light straw and green tinge. The palate is lively, crisp but with a slight fruity sweetness that relays the apple and pear notes. Pair with sushi, light tapas. Drink now. Tasted Oct '13
