Golden in color with a lot of very small bubbles, clear and bright. The nose is very nice with chalk, toast, and slight marzipan. Full bodied. Good balance. On the palate, this is crisp with a very, very slight sweetness to it. Chalk and slight dried citrus notes. Long finish. This has plenty of depth. Drinking well now, this should drink well for seven to ten more years. It is very food versatile and should go with just about any food. It went very well with a spicy vegetarian pizza.
