The wine is clear and bright with a pale lemon colour and presence of many small-sized bubbles. The nose is clean and developing, showing medium- intensity aromas of rye bread, bread dough, green apple, lemon peel and hints of cream. The wine is off-dry in the mouth with a medium acidity. It has a medium alcohol and a medium body with a creamy mousse. It has medium intensity flavours of rye bread, green apple, lemon peel and hints of cream. The finish is medium(+).
It is a very good quality wine. It has a very nice finish, a decent enough flavour concentration and a good overall balance among all structural componentes. However it could be more complex, and it could have more pronounced intensity flavours. Can drink now, but it has some acidic structure and fruit concentration to develop some tertiary aromas over the next 1-2 years following disgorgement.
Dined with WYK old boys at T's Kitchen. I came with a higher hope on this wine than the rest because it is my bottle. It turned out to be quite fine bubbly, white flower with clean finish. It doesn't lose to a champagne.
This was a little lighter and more delicate than I expected. Notes of creamy lemon meringue were prominent with some more subtle notes of baked lemons and golden apple on the finish. The acidity was pretty good and so was the bead. I was hoping for a little more depth and minerality but that was not based on a history with this wine. It is still a good Franciacorta, 87 - 88.
