Wine Enthusiast Review
From a great vintage, this wine both reflects the year and also shows the producer's trademark crisp style that keeps the wine's natural acidity. That approach lends itself to aging and this wine, now 11 years old, is still intensely fresh. It only just shows signs of maturity and toast. That means it will age further, probably at its peak from 2022.
Light gold color with fine bubbles forming a noticeable ring. On the nose are intense notes of candied fruits, grape jam, acacia and lime tree flowers honey. On the palate there is a dense attack expressing rich and complex aromas of winter pear and quince with some notes of fig. Well balanced. The finish is persistent.
