Have been drinking this vintage since it's release. Crisp, great bubbles with nice nose of vanilla and green apples, light an the palate but has a nice rich almost creamy finish. That's what I like in a sparkler. Have visited this winery and always impressed with their love of the product; reflected in what they produce. Also a big fan of the Oudinot Brute NV and this wine compares very favorably at $20-$25 less.
