    September 19, 2020 - What’s not to like? Dry, lively bubbles, nice acidity. I’m a fan.

    June 26, 2020 - Basic entry level NV champagne. Nothing wrong with it, but very unremarkable. Not much complexity and tastes a bit of rubbing alcohol. Don't pay more than $30.

    June 19, 2020 - Method: Served at about 48 degrees; pop and pour; Grassl Mineralite glass

    Look: a lot of bubbles; medium straw; medium or so viscosity

    Nose: apple pie, vanilla, raw pie crust, a bit of cream, pear, a bit of baking spices, some mineral

    Palate: raw pie crust, croissant, unripe orchard fruit, mineral; long- finish of pear the fade quickly to mineral and gun smoke; medium+ (maybe medium) body; dry, but not bone dry (low- sweetness); medium- amount of medium- strength bubbles (good, not overpowering attack)l medium acid

    Overall thoughts: Great balance, good flavor, and very good mouthfeel with good body and pleasant, but not too strong bubbles. Really great value for $27 from Last Bottle.

    March 22, 2020 - Color: pale yellow/hay. Bouquet of Lemon zest, minneola, yeast, and slate. Profusion of tiny bubbles. Orange flesh honeydew and lime on tongue. A tiny bit of sourness holds it together magnificently. Lingering finish. $25. - $28? Yes!

    March 22, 2020 - Very solid. Lemon vest, mineola, yeast and some minerality on nose. Very diffused bubbles. Complexity on tongue expressed with a subtle sourness balancing sweetness, orange flesh honeydew. Luxurious lingering aftertaste. $28? Yes!
