Description

"...bright and finely cut, with lovely aromatic nuance to complement a core of orchard and citrus fruits. This is an especially brilliant sparkling wine considering the base is Pinot Noir." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"...medium gold hue to go with plenty of ripe orchard fruits, spice, and brioche-like nuances. It's not the most aromatic out there, but it has an impressive, layered mouthfeel, a bright, lively, integrated mousse, and a classy finish. It's another well-made, thoroughly enjoyable sparkler from this label." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

A complex sparkling blend comprised of roughly 88% Pinot Noir and 12% Chardonnay spending an extended time en tirage to bring out its unique characteristics.  You won't miss fine persistent bubbles floating to the top of your flute in a pale straw background. Light and flowery on the nose with a palate dominated by lemon cream, pear, roasted cashew and rounded out by a hint of nectarine.
