    September 7, 2015 - A bit worse than my last tasting, with less character or Chenin-acidity. Fairly sweet, but surprisingly rich with a reasonable amount of character. Not a bad cellar-defender party wine at $9.

    August 21, 2015 - Bottle Bargains in-store tasting - small tastes, short notes (Northport, NY): Sweeter than the "Brut" designation usually implies. Very reminiscent of a sweeter version of inexpensive sparklers from Vouvray. Very evident Chenin fruit. Ripe, sour orchard fruit. Not horrible.

    November 3, 2013 - While drinking this, I got a sense that I was biting too far into a Granny Smith apple, getting that bitter core flavor. Some crisp acid, but I didn't find this pleasant.

  • Risky Does not like this wine: 70 points

    July 22, 2013 - too flat; not very tasty; semi-sweet flavor
