This Champagne has green apples on the nose and a hint of straw. On the palate the green apples are well blended and balanced with a hint of lemon and other citrus, some straw and pinch of nutmeg. The wine also has a touch of creaminess to it. Wonderfully fine bead that is still going strong. The color is not that dark and has a long way to go before it turns golden with age. This wine should keep in its current top form for at least another 3 to 4 years.
