Master Sommelier Tasting Notes: “Indescribably brilliant with a freshness and vibrancy that need to be experienced to be believed , this otherworldly Champagne cascades wave after wave of candied citrus, quince, yellow plum and green pear fruit with elements of wet stone/saline-like minerality, toast, white flowers and a hint of ginger. On your palate, it takes over and puts your swallow reflex into overdrive, then the expansive finish grows for a minute plus, leaving you begging for another sip.  It’s simply my new favorite Champagne.  Kevin Vogt 97 Points

Comprised of 100% Chardonnay grapes that were sorted by hand, and pressed traditionally to collect the noblest juice.  With just a minuscule amount imported into the US, we don’t expect this beauty to be available for long…
