Tasting Notes

Pale yellow color.


This 2005 vintage champagne glistens with a golden reflection as bubbles dance up the middle of the glass. 


In a complex year with a hard winter, this particular vintage thrived in optimal conditions before the harvest making a significant and high-quality wine. The complex nose is fruity, gourmet, and filled with white fruit notes. Citrus and ripe fruits of Mirabelle plum provide beautiful structure to delight the palate sip after sip.
