    April 20, 2014 - Very nice. A great find and a wonderful QPR.

    November 23, 2013 - A bigger, more masculine style Champagne. Medium and bright golden color. Made of 100% Pinot Meunier displaying a fantastic amount of frothy mousse, and lots of exhilarating, effervescent, very tiny bubbles. Big aromatics. Toasty and yeasty aromas and flavors of crisp apples, tart pears, and dried apricots with enough nutty and mineral complexity to make this very enjoyable. Above average finish with an outstanding QPR at $29.

    March 26, 2013 - Fine mousse, good balance of yeast and apple on the nose, with a hint of dried apricot. Very nice bubbly.

    October 23, 2011 - Aromas of stewed apples, lilac, lavender with a hint of freshly baked pie dough. Palate shows apple pie and pear tart with lively acid. It has an elegant and long finish. Even with 100% Pinot Meunier, the fruit is well balanced and carries a lot of finesse.
