Pulled cold from fridge and used Riedel Vinum Champagne flutes. Very pale in color with effusive, tight bubbles. Minerals and yeast on the not overpowering nose. Extremely focused, steely fruit, with a very distinct rocky/mineral (limestone?)flavor that penetrates the upper palate, which is followed by a long and complex yeasty/biscuit-y finish, leaving the mouth in a state of anticipation for the next sip. Big but not overpowering acid. Couldn't detect any wood. Drank it without food, although fresh Oysters would seem right. Cannot stress enough the overall mineral character of this bubbly. Not for those who prefer any sweetness/roundness in their Champagne, but for those of us mineral/acid heads this is nirvana. Was told that almost no dosage is used. Moved up to one of my three favorite bubblies ever.
