Bottle: Fine, cork clean Look: Dark honeyed Nose: Honey, almost butterscotch fruit Body: Great fizz and bubbles (robust fizz and small trailing up bubbles) Taste: Initially very sautern-ish honey, later more slight orange fruit and very slight pear lemon. Finish: Didn't time it, but I recall around 30-40. Summar: Opened up and got better over time. Drink 'em up now, IMHO. Best with food. 86 pts B.
As usual, a quite good cremant from Schramsberg. However, this particular vintage appears to have less acidity than usual, so the finish isn't as crisp. Their bubbly usually cellars quite well, but in this case I'd drink earlier rather than later.
