 This is lacy in texture, featuring a firm frame of acidity and a smoke-tinged underpinning. Offers flavors of poached quince, toast and pickled ginger, with a crisp, citrusy finish. Drink now through 2020. (AN)  (11/2017)

James Suckling

 Red berries, honeysuckle, lemon brioche and sweet floral notes make for an attractive nose. The palate has crisp melon flavor on entry. Tangy acid kick and a smooth pastry-infused finish. Drink now.  (10/2017)

Vinous

 Light yellow-gold. Zesty citrus and orchard fruits on the mineral-accented nose, with a hint of white flowers coming up with aeration. Lively and focused on the palate, offering slightly tart lemon and green apple flavors and a hint of candied ginger. Closes taut and spicy, with good cut and length. (JR)  (1/2015)

Wine Enthusiast

 This is soft, creamy and accessible. With its attractive citrus acidity balanced by a generous dosage, it emphasizes white fruits, crisp acidity and a light, lively aftertaste. (RV)  (12/2016)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose.
