Very full mousse. Almost soda-like. Subtle biscuit, green apple and lime on the nose. Palate is of yeasty apple with lime and a mineral finish. Nowhere near over the hill as the WS window suggests. This will be fine for another 12-18 mos.
You have to love the "Frank Sinatra" of the tiny bubbles that marks Schramsberg. Dry, with a touch of tart apples and a nose of some ripe pair, (pairs beautifully with sauteed apple, pear and fois gras).
Slightly gold color with a fine mousse. Nose is yeasty with apples. Similar palate includes a touch of spice. I think this may have suffered in being paired with some grilled crab legs - it was better on its own.
