Showstopper. Golden yellow color. Big, expressive nose balancing some yeasty/brioche notes with some enchanting apple and pear. The first sip is just as pure a taste of green apple and meyer lemon that one could ask for. Just a strain of pure fruit that moves all the way through the finish while maintaining some excellent brightness and showing off some taut acidic structure. A luxurious wine. Long, delicious finish.
I was taking this down like it was Perrier. Excellent stuff.
Very much enjoyed this older vintage Champagne, which I got for around $21 in Garagiste's "garage sale" mystery box. Darker gold in color, with a small, fine bead. Slightly oxidized on the palate, with the nuttiness in the foreground and the fruit far, far behind along with some toast notes. Interesting to taste an older bottle.
