Fine, long persisting bubbles. Medium lemon-gold. Nose of bread, toast, and red apple. Same on palate. Medium + acidity. Medium sweet. Nice. Not all that complex though. Medium length finish. Would pair well with spicy Thai food or serve as desert.
Light yellow color. Flowery nose: jasmine, lilies Too sweet for me: apple-peach cobbler, shortbread cookies; distant minerality. Lots of persistent tiny bubbles. You can even feel them going down your throat. Nice! Almost no acidity with a short finish.
Sweet end to 2014 (Tampines): Appearance is clear, pale intensity, lemon colour, fine bubbles. Nose is clean, medium- intensity, with aromas of citrus lemon, green apple. Youthful. On the palate, medium-dry, high acidity, medium alcohol, medium body. Medium flavour intensity, with flavours of citrus lemon, green apple, and some honeysuckle. Medium+ finish. Acceptable quality. Simple tasting demi-sec with none of the bready yeasty complexity. Somehow the neither here nor there sugar level gives the overall feeling of off-balance.

(NV Cliquot Demi-Sec) #3; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-golden; NOSE-almond paste and cookie dough; PALATE-nice sweetness; reminds me of those sugared lemon wedge candies; a little baked bread as well; AFTER LUCKY CHARMS: good acid on the back-end; this is a little awkward; WS-88; GV-87/88
(NV Veuve Clicquot Demi-Sec) A light, rather floral presence on the nose, with some crystalline flower petals leading the way. Quite precise, which makes a welcome change, with good acidity, minerally quality, but just a little hint of sulphur in the background. Smoky, textured. This is decent enough, and is certainly better than many of the other high dosage wines here.
