Wine Spectator Score: 90
A floral, delicate style, evoking lime blossom, elder flower and apple flavors, plus a hint of yeast. This has lovely harmony and a lingering finish. Ideal as an aperitif. Drink now.
Decanter Rating: 4 Stars
Lovely aroma, very elegant soft white fruit, citrus and floral bouquet. Elegant zestiness, clean, soft white fruit characters, good length.
On the palate, the crispness of the style dominates, and the precision and refreshment of this Champagne seems beautifully suited to the warm weather.
A Summer Salad Suggestion perfectly matched with this Champagne!
