An excellent bottle of Champagne. Light golden in color with a nice mousse of fine bubbles. On the palate, this has red apples, slight ginger, minerals and a bit of saline. On the palate, this is a bigger wine. More so than prior vintages which is not bad or good. It is still a very crisp wine which is a good thing. Slight citrus, slight green apples and lots of minerality. A long/tart finish. This will go with a wide variety of foods and is delicious on its own. At $60 per bottle, this is fairly priced.
