Pale gold with plenty of bubbles. Full aromas of toast, fresh bread dough, yeast, lime and green apple. Slightly sweet and hence does not present the acidity of typical Brut champagnes. This is a throwback to an older style of Champagne, with rich and ripe flavours of apple, rhubarb, even blueberries or saskatoons. I tried it over ice, as suggested, but am not yet a convert to that experience. Happily, it is very tasty straight up. Drink any time.
