Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - Exuberant grapefruit peel, almond skin, honeysuckle, and lime zest rise from the glass with a suggestion of red berries. Delicate cherry, graham cracker, and lemon meringue pie flavors take over on the palate with an elegant, mineral finish that ensues. (Jun 2016)
Wine Spectator 91 points - A full-bodied, Pinot-driven bubbly, rich and full of biscuit, mineral and nutty flavors. Firm, balanced and harmonious, this is a Champagne for food. Excellent length. Drink now. 17,500 cases made. –BS (Jan 1 2004)
You can perceive the aromas of mature quince and pippin apples in the bouquet and the mouth feel is very pleasant thanks to the hamony between the freshness of the lemon - scented aromas and the fullness of the flavours of white fruit syrup; it has a strong finish.
