The Full Review

Though this Champagne contains slightly equal parts white and red fruit, the red fruit character comes through much more strongly. Notes of brioche-like, toasted nuts mix with tart cherry, underripe strawberry, and orange oil on the nose, while the palate carries through tangy fruit and savory, leesy funk to a creamy, nutty finish.
