"This sparkling chardonnay is bright and fresh and crisp with attractive lemon and dried-pear aromas and a rather juicy, very clean finish. Drink now." James Suckling 90 points Drink 2023+
Burnt popcorn and some ammonia make the nose fairly harsh. Time softens it a bit as it yields to green-fruit flavors. Finishes dry as a soda cracker, with some Old World touches. Not an easy wine to enjoy; it's very lean and underdeveloped.
Soft in texture, with modest biscuit and apple notes. Easy finish. Drink now.
