This superb, handcrafted sparkling wine, immediately reminiscent of the Taittinger style, is marked by an exceptional refinement and finesse. Its brilliant straw gold color is punctuated by strands of persistent, pinpoint bubbles. The subtle, ripe fruit richness of the Pinot Noir is balanced by the elegant depth and structure of the Chardonnay, converging in notes of toast and vanilla which linger in the extended finish.
While not unpleasant by any means, for the same price, I'll buy the Roderer Estate every time. Color (3 of 3). Solid marks, but lacking depth for top marks in bouquet (3 of 4). The taste is decidely too sweet for a brut, but is not offensive for what it is. (3 of 8). Overall, it's okay. (3 of 5). Total: 12 of 20
