Similar to previous bottle 04/2015 but more crisp and pungent. White fruit on nose, more crisp and pungent on palate, stones too but also vinous although this bottle kept more present the mousse. I had another bottle from another batch and was clearly younger on palate, so maybe the problem is just my bottles.
Brisk and extremely clean, flavor high on stones, low on fruit. While I enjoyed this wine, I admit I don't know what it is supposed to be reflective of, and I think much of the enjoyment is my love for sparkling wines in general.
It seems this wine evolves quite fast. 2 years after my last bottle, I bought a 6-pack and so far all bottles consumed are visually evolved, as little to no bubbles left. The wine maintains the pastry, white fruit bouquet along with a slightly sherry-like aroma and taste. It's still fresh but definitely more vinous, actually on palate it's more like a dry wine than a sparkler but drinks nice. Drink up. 86-88
