Drinking Window: 2022 - 2024
This bottle-fermented blanc de blancs (100% Chardonnay) is a great-value Champagne alternative. It's bright straw yellow in colour, and fresh as a daisy, with aromatic, lemon citrus fruit notes and a caress of warm toastiness on the finish. Drier than many Brut Champagnes (3g/L dosage), with focus and vibrancy.
