Food Matching

A fun, cheaper alternative to Champagne for a party or an aperitif, this will take on many of the same foods that good, non-vintage Champagne can take on. Try this with all kinds of fish and seafood, including smoked and raw, and don't be afraid to try it with all kinds of spicy food, such as Indian, Chinese and Thai. Because of its good, clean acidity, it can also take on richer, cheese dishes and dishes containing cream, and Michel Roux suggests deep-fried almond-coated Camembert.

Wine tasting notes

Rich yeasty aromas with hints of clean lime fruit on the nose. An exciting fine mousse and a creamy complexity on the palate. The wine ends with an elegant long finish.

Expert Reviews

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2010)90 pts

June 2015 - Stephen Tanzer - Full straw-yellow. Fresh on the nose but complicated by some older juice, offering scents of apple, caramel, musky lees, toast and porcini. Full, vinous and toasty in the mouth, showing much softer bubbles than the recently disgorged non-vintage bottlings. Notes of butter, toffee and porcini lead to a slightly tired finish, even though this wine is higher in acidity and lower in residual sugar than the non-vintage bottlings. As satisfying as a good mature Champagne now but should be consumed soon.
