A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: Exuberant green floral perfume, melon and peach abound on this profoundly aromatic sparkler. It's delicate in mousse with soft, persistent bubbles and deeply penetrating flavors of stone fruit and tangerine. Vibrant and spine-tingling, it's a remarkably elegant sekt with a gentle price tag.
