This is certainly a good sparkling wine, but when kicking-off a flight of Champagnes during a revision tasting session, it didn’t show as ‘supremely better’ than the NVs also tasted. It also had the (for me) characteristic slightly bitter finish of Moët, which I don’t particularly like. Pale gold, with green glints. Persistent, but medium-fine bead. Medium intensity nose of lemon, with biscuit, toast, cream and yeasty development notes. Fairly delicate mousse, and well integrated lemony acidity. Pithy, grapefruit bitterness through the finish. Fairly long.
