    January 1, 2021 - Quite nice. A little sweet, but we'll crafted with fine carbonation and a lovely apple citrus balanced by yeasty toast flavors - consumed NYE 2020.

    December 31, 2020 - Nice! As per previous commentary, not as sweet but nicely balanced acidity and freshness and nuttiness. Taste like vintage Champagne.

    December 27, 2020 - Still drinking very nicely. Nuttiness, almond and lemon zest on the palate. Not much yeast. Very fine bubbles with a light mousse. I did not find much sweetness in this. That is to my taste but was surprised given the "sec" designation.

    December 1, 2019 - Very strong burnt sugar on the palate. Really not that sweet at all.
