From a bottle that I purchased about 6 months ago. Radiant gold color with an abundance of rich, but not frothy, bubbles. Intense nose of citrus, passion fruit, creme brulee, and some mild toasty notes. Just a hint of what we like to call around here "near-sweet" fruit flavors which could almost pass for a new world wine, but great body and acidity to balance it all out. Very impressive bottle, my first time having tasted it. This is the kind of champagne that could easily be paired with a meal, not just with apertifs or on its own. Great stuff. FYI this is the "newer label" but I couldn't find any batch codes or production details.
