A clear golden color, fine, elegant bubbles. A delicate nose dominated by citrus fruit, with hints of fudge. Superb length, smooth with brioche aromas and subtle notes of honey, pine nuts, and light tobacco.

“A note of woodsy smoke underscores flavors of tangy plum, candied kumquat, white peach and fresh ginger in this mouthwatering Champagne, backed by firm, citrusy acidity. 5,000 cases made.” — 90 points, AN, Wine Spectator
