Sampled on 03/11/2016

Appearance:

Clear, light golden with slight green tinge and lively persistent bubbles.

Aroma:

Brioche, hay bales, crisp green apples and very faint rhubarb and pine sap.

Taste:

Clean and well-balanced with delicate creamy green apple fruit, zesty bite, good biscuit notes and a touch of yeast.

Aftertaste:

Cleansing minerally and citrus finish.

Overall:

A great aperitif champagne with a relatively soft mousse and mouthfeel.
