Winemaker's Notes

The enchanting aromatics of this wine - the pineapple, the mango, the peach, the apricot fruitiness - lead faithfully to the palate, where the same fruity elements are fleshed out marvelously with hints of French bread toastiness. The bubbles, as they ought to be in a fine French Champagne, are small, refined and persistent. The fruit and that creamy, bread-like component delightfully spread out on the palate, lingering richly in a long finish.

Serving this wine as an aperitif - it is an ideal complement to shellfish, sushi or tapas - only begins to tap the potential of Les Filantes. Cream-based soups would be much enhanced by the pairing, as would most white meat entrees. And as an accompaniment to dessert? The array is limited only by one's imagination.

I gave this champagne a five star based on it's price. Hard to find any champagne below $40, such as the yellow labeled one. at $29.99 this is a bargain. Small, fine bubbles, very dry with a crisp finish. I am going to order more for the holidays.
