Delicate yet complex nose, with hints of citrus fruit, and a good balanced palate.
Wine Enthusiast 89 points - A fine bead in the glass, it shows a bit more warm, round fruit than in previous bottlings, leading into a slightly bitter finish of citrus rind, lime zest and wet stone. Score: 89. —Paul Gregutt, December 01, 2006.
Wine Spectator 88 points - A light-weight, delicate bubbly, with floral and apple notes married to a lithe and lively profile. It has moderate length. Ideal as an aperitif. Drink now. Score: 88. —Bruce Sanderson, November 30, 2006.
Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2002 Brut Millesime shows good up-front richness in its dried apricots, dried pears, flowers and spices. This is a relatively supple, easygoing 2002 best suited to near-term drinking. This is lot # L43PX103290Q. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.”,,, (Nov 2011)
Medium bodied and very easy on the palate. Perfectly balanced: a soft mouthfeel belies the strong structure of the wine. Finishes clean yet delicately lingers.
