Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The NV Brut is an easy-going, attractive wine with good definition in its aromas and flavors. The wine offers reasonable length even if suggestions of greenness clamp down on the finish. Disgorged: June, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2011.
Baked apple aromas lead to a palate that has ripe fruit, and caramel over acidity. The wine is perfumed, full, with suggestions of some oxidation.
