Reviews

  • "94 points. Light bronze-hued orange-pink. A heady, complex bouquet evokes fresh red fruit, orange pith, pungent flowers and smoky minerals. Sappy, concentrated and focused on the palate, offering mineral-laced, finely etched strawberry, blood orange and honeysuckle flavors that turn livelier on the back half. The marriage of power and delicacy here is really impressive. The floral note carries emphatically through a dry, sharply focused finish that shows outstanding clarity and persistence. This wine is as fine a bubbly as I can recall tasting from outside Champagne." (vinous)
