"Pale yellow. Fresh citrus fruits, jasmine and licorice on the mineral-accented nose. Fleshy but lithe and focused on the palate, offering intense lemon and orange flavors and deeper notes of pear skin and honey. Gains weight with air and finishes with strong mineral cut and lingering floral nuances. This Champagne is aging slowly and will be even more interesting with five more years of bottle age."
