Colour: Light-gold, very beautiful
Sparkle: Fine, extremely long-lasting mousse
Bouquet: Citrus fruits, mangos, peaches and apricots
Palate: A wonderful balance of aromatic strength and the freshness of exotic fruits
Overall impression: A refined blend in which the elegance of the Chardonnay melds with the fruitiness of the Pinot Meunier and the enduring flavour of the Pinot Noir. That is the art of champagne production
Wine Spectator 90 points - Plenty of graphite and mineral aromas. Shifts gears to peach, lemon and vanilla notes. Rich and mouthfilling, with a firm structure and power. Good, lingering finish. Drink now. 12,500 cases made. Score: 90. óBruce Sanderson, 2005.
