About the wine

Tasting notes

Refined delicate pastry, acacia honey and white flowers, seems very balanced and a touch airy giving it a beautiful lift and focus, some Pear William, then the attention to detail giving a wondrous platform that gives a lovingly wrap around the palate and a perfect platform for refined food. There is a delicate white floral bouquet from the start and this sublime wine brings a smile to your face.

Expert review

96pts - A graceful Champagne, showing a sense of finesse to the detailed intersection of bright, buoyant acidity and chalky minerality, with a fine, satiny mousse and flavours of ripe Asian pear, dried white cherry, salted almond, lemon curd and crystallised honey. Long and mouthwatering on the creamy finish, echoing spice and saline notes.
