(Vintage 2011)

Tasting Notes 05/08/21:

Eye: Color was deep gold with a very fine gentle bead.

Nose: Marizipan, biscuit, lemon curd, chalk, oolong tea, and vanilla.

Palate: Bruised green apple, lemon zest, biscuit, chalky minerality, macadamias, baking spice, caramel and hints of orange liquor.

Drink now to how mature do you like your wines.

Pair with duck (do you have any smoked duck available?), smoked fish, truffles, morels, and ohhhh yes Foie gras especially seared. g


“Wild and full of character, with chalky lemon and biscuity savoriness. The composure is beautiful. Super dry, gently spicy and succulent. An entrancing and alluring Champagne.”
