Review and Tasting


Sampled on 30/09/2014

Appearance:

(sample disgorged Nov-2013) Clear, pale golden yellow with persistent small bubbles.

Aroma:

Lemon meringue pie and lemon sherbet served with toast and honey. Very faint crispy bacon-like whiffs.

Taste:

Citrus led, high acidity, steely, tart and zingy

Aftertaste:

Lingering lemon zest and citric acidy. Overall: Perfect for those seeking a zingy citrus led champagne.
