A complex sparkling wine created in a robust style that offers weight and dimension to the palate. With extended time on the yeast, this wine has a creamy texture, combining aromas of toasted hazelnuts with notes of black cherry, baked apple and ginger.
"Just delicious, a fascinating counterpoint to the winery’s ’01 Brut Chardonnay, with which it was coreleased. Shows a beautiful Pinotesque weight, with a cherried edge to the lime and yeast flavors. With a grand cru texture, this is really one of the best Chandon bubblies of recent memory."
"Rich and focused, offering yeasty baked apple and fresh ginger aromas, with vibrant, layered flavors of cherry and citrus that show notes of cinnamon and spice. Drink now through 2013. 2,535 cases made."
I was initially leery- seemed like it was a really good price for a known quality product. In fact, it was so good, I tried to buy more after trying a bottle, and you were sold out. If you can get this, buy all you can- It is that good.
Worth buying again.
