"Consistent with its blanc de noirs label, this displays hints of strawberry and raspberry on the attractively layered and moderately yeasty nose. There is good verve to the firmly effervescent, clean and slightly citrusy flavors that possess fine complexity if limited refinement on the very dry and crisp finish. I like the concentration and for my taste this needs a few more years of bottle age." - (Jan 15, 2014)
