So this was one of the most bizarre experiences with vintage champagne. I popped the bottle and poured a full chard glass in order to let the wine breathe. I forgot about the glass, but returned about 2 hours later. It warmed but the serious green apple/pear was both tart and had good acidity. A touch of toast and yeast, but young, and like nothing I have ever had. It was really hard to believe this was not a Sec champagne. I returned to the cooled and aired bottle, where it was still pretty decent, but flavors just were as bold. The high residual sugar wasn't as noticeable at this temp, but it was pretty bland. I saved some for the next day and it was rather boring. This might be good for aging about 4-5 years so the RS can integrate and the yeast and toast can show a bit more, but a good wine for $40. I gave away the other bottle as a present, and they pouredcreme de cassis in it. Sad. I don't know if I would buy again, but a great alternative to many NV cuvee out there.
Hit the spot today, nose of lemon, nuts, granny smith apple and hints of yeast, palate the lemon came across slightly more astringent than previous experiences, bubbles still carry the flavor profile to a nice medium length finish -
Really enjoyed this, beautiful nose of citrus and essence of nut oil, elegant effervescence and a light body with decent acidity carried apple, nut and lemon zest components through a very enjoyable finish great value under $40
