Round, ripe and lemony, it’s more like a very good California sparkler than fine Champagne. Tasty, fruity and approachable, but missing the refinement and the texture that elevates the very top Champagnes.
The famous yellow label wine. This bottling contains mostly 2001-vintage base wine, and offers a round mouthfeel balanced by crisp acids and flavors of apple and citrus.
Creamy and soft in the mouth, yet well balanced, this is an easy-to-down Champagne that would be a good party choice. Toast, anise and citrus notes are joined by riper nectarine and apple flavors.
