Lively, edgy, fruity aroma. This has some spritz on first pour from the dissolved CO2 and needs to be decanted to let it blow off. Then deep, red-fruited Trousseau, but fun and playful, not too serious. Since this vintage first hit US shores, it has really put on some weight and the fruit has come to the foreground. It is quite a dramatic improvement from when I first tasted it. Very drinkable at 11.5%.
