    August 28, 2016 - Fresh, fine bubbles, off-dry finish leaning towards a crisp apple or pear. Good nose, almost honey color. Very enjoyable for $15

    August 11, 2016 - Slight pink in color. Good bubbles. Nice nose of berries. Slightly toasty with a hint of apples and strawberries on the palate. This has replaced the Gruet Brut as my go to party champagne. Great stuff and always a crowd pleaser.

    July 3, 2016 - Clear, medium (+) yellow in color. The nose is clean, with some nice apple, toast and hazelnut. The palate is dry, with medium (+) acidity, and medium alcohol (12%). Medium flavor intensity and length. This is a tasty and well-balanced bubbly which, in a blind tasting, would probably rate as high as others costing twice as much.

    July 2, 2016 - Interesting. Had a slight reddish hue color. I assumed it was a rose. Nose and palate were quite mild and light. Slight aroma of apple. Maybe some straw or hay or grassy note. Palate was very crisp, dry / acidic. Not off-putting, but bracing. Good structure.

    June 17, 2016 - Smooth and creamy lemon undertones. While the bubbles carry the dryness through the finish citric honey and spice notes are most prominent. Excellent value.
