A low-dosage Champagne that I picked up a couple of bottles of whilst hunting down tasting wines. I must say I felt the first bottle was more enjoyable than the second. Toasty complexity to classic Chardonnay elegance and citrus. However, the firmness of acidity and underlying minerality just struck me as a little too austere in the second bottle. I think this is around 4 g/L. Perhaps a couple more grams would have balanced that just a little better. Otherwise good.
