91% Pinot Noir; 9% Chardonnay. Attractive elements of mild, faintly cherryish fruit are joined by a nice complement of creamy yeast in the nose, and the two follow on into the wine’s direct, nominally champenized flavors. The wine is dry and a touch soft in balance, and it is a friendly, easy-to-approach sparkler that is especially recommended to those who are not comfortable with higher-acid versions.

A wonderfully drinkable sparkling wine that appeals immediately for its balanced texture and rich flavors. Easy to like for its array of raspberries, limes, vanilla, toast and yeast. The sour lees note is nicely balanced with the sweet liqueur of dosage.

Rich, creamy and a pleasure to sip, offering aromas of apple and lime, with a touch of white chocolate that opens to luscious flavors of Asian pear, cinnamon and spice. Drink now. 4,194 cases made.
