TASTING NOTE: A nicely defined, elegant and sophisticated blanc de blancs - vibrant and toasty. Mid-weight with the freshness of chardonnay that cuts the unexpected richness on the palate. Well-balanced, with both charm and refinement. Impressively complex at a steal of a price. Re-tasted September 2017. Score - 92 (Sara d'Amato, winealign.com, Oct. 3, 2017) Price $ 29.95
