    July 28, 2022 - Fairly neutral, nicely carbonated, tiny bubbles. Slight bready, yeast. Not much fruit, but balanced. Medium bodied and finish.

  • JRockEsq Likes this wine: 91 points

    July 23, 2022 - Method: pop and pour out of fridge; Glasvin Champagne glass

    Look: pale gold; high amount of vigorous bubbles

    Nose: vanilla, butter, challa, yellow apple, faint chalk/minerality

    Palate: challa, yellow apple, pear, light butter, light cream; medium+ finish vanilla, chalk, challa crust; dry (but not bone dry); medium- body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel; medium- acidity; high amount of strong, smaller bubbles

    Overall thoughts: I love the notes on the nose and palate -- there's a nice richness here and it's not too simple. The acidity it lower than expected, but it's still nicely balanced. The bubbles are a bit stronger and more prevalent than I prefer, but that's expected with a younger NV wine. 91 - 92 points. Great wine.

    July 23, 2022 - Nose: yeast, croissant, lemon pith, yellow apple, river rock

    Taste: small bubbles, build to a nice gentle froth; golden apple, challa, vanilla, brioche, lemon pith; medium - body; medium - acidity

    Overall: I wish it was more expressive but I do enjoy the flavors I am picking up and the bubbles are nice. it’s definitely yummy.

    July 7, 2022 - Consitent notes, this batch the oak seemed to veer a little spicy and cinnamon forward. I remember previous bottles being better integrated

  • rustyRudy Likes this wine: 91 points

    July 3, 2022 - Light yellow, marzipan, oak and white flowers on the nose, lemon, oak, toast and mushrooms on the finish
