    December 31, 2021 - Sabered the top off for NYE 🙂. The age on this bottle has given a rounded sweetness to it, with a creamy mouthfeel that dances with bubbles on your tongue.

    February 10, 2021 - Light gold color. Aromas of peaches, lemons, yellow apples, with some chalk and honey. Juicy on the palate with apricot and yellow apples, lemon drops, moderating acidity and some sugar cane notes woven in well. Bright, fun, fresh, balanced, with slight toast and honeybutter elements to accent the white flowers, sea salt and perfume tones.

    January 2, 2021 - On the nose- Bright green apple skin, dried cranberry's, fresh lemon zest, lemon meringue pie, toasted almonds, toasted brioche, white flowers

    On the nose- Bright green apple skin and dried cranberry's, fresh lemon zest and lemon meringue pie, toasted almonds and toasted brioche with a hint of white flowers on the end. This is such a great value for bubbles with a nice bright finish with a nice bit of acid to balance out the sweetness.

    September 20, 2020 - Good value, good complexity for what it is. Outdrinks bottom of the barrel champagnes. Nice rich brioche and red apple flavors give it some weight and depth of flavor.
