Alc./Vol.: 12%

Review: Made in the traditional method from 100% Chardonnay that was grown in limestone rich clay. It was aged a minimum of 36 months on its lees. On the nose, it has aromas of ripe pear, pie crust, citrus notes and marzipan.

On the palate, it is dry, medium-bodied, creamy, with lots of fine bubbles. It is fresh with lemon flavours, hints of almond biscotti, and a slightly bitter finish. The flavours linger. An excellent dupe for Champagne.

Tasted August 2019.

Wine-Food Pairing: Pair with seafood salad, salty tempura fried appetizers, or go ahead and indulge with caviar.
