Sampled before 1st May 2011
Light golden yellow with fine, persistent bubbles.
The appealing nose is reminiscent of Marmite on generously buttered toast with slight hints of candied citrus fruit.
The fresh palate zings with lemon juice and lemon zest acidity with nutty notes mid palate before finishing with more fresh lemon acidity.
Drinking well now but may benefit from being cellared for a few years.
Closure: Champagne/cork & muselet wire cage
