An aged Blanc de Blanc with freshness

Tasting Note: Light gold in colour with a fine mousse featuring baked bread, lemon, pear, green apples, vanilla and white honey.

Interesting Point: Bottle aged of this wine on the lees for a minimum of two years and disgorge each bottle just before it leaves the winery. I preferred this wine in slender Champagne style glass vs the larger mouth stemware. The wine shows more complexity.

Pairings: Drink now on its own for the next 3-5 years or pair it with shrimp tempura.

My Opinion: Recommended
