TASTING NOTE: Pale straw-yellow with a strong, fine mousse. Sexy musky perfume of peach, nutmeg, truffle and brioche, plus a touch of orange blossom. Strong frothy, penetrating wine with an impression of firm acidity owing to its dryness. Delivers lovely citrussy grip and penetration in a rather weightless, airy package. More austere and classic, with lovely subtle intensity of flavor and length: now we're talking! Has plenty of extract and intensity but remains lively and light on its feet. This impressive, gripping sparkling wine could still use a year or two to soften. Drinking window: 2018-2023. Score - 91 (Stephen Tanzer, vinous.com, May 2017) Price $ 23.95
