An aperitif wine by its sheer excellence, this tasty champage offers a beautiful golden hue, with very fine bubbles. To the nose you instantly succomb to the most devine smell of a pastry store, then violets, lime tree in full fruit and the usual dried apricot tones.

To the mouth its silky smooth but then melts in your mouth! A sensual explosion that has enabled this fine wine to win multiple awards for the house.

Experience a fully developed wine, with a radiant bouquet that is captivating yet subtle. Although notes of fully ripe fruit, such as nectarines and cherry plums, are apparent initially, the finish reveals the wealth of the gourmet world, hinting at nougat, honey and cereal grains.

This wine is remarkably smooth and generous on the palate. Three years of maturation have given it body and substance. As the wine opens up, it is full and intense with notes of warm bread blending harmoniously with discreet notes of ginger and coriander.

The grapes used to produce this exquisite testament to winemaking are selected from the top crus in the Champagne region. 34% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Meunier.

critical acclaim:
"A rich and toasty Champagne, with vivacious acidity backing the flavors of apple pastry and coffee, with just a touch of hard candy or treacle. The texture is delicate and refined, and the wine shows fine length overall. Drink now through 2016."

Wine Spectator

"A great wine, much more than only a Champagne, this is impressively rich and ripe, with crisp yellow fruits, spices and layers of toast. It’s in an opulent style that is round but also very focused on tight layers of fruit, minerality and final vivid acidity."

Wine Enthusiast

"An attractive bouquet of cooked peaches, charred oak and minerals. A well-toasted triad of tropical fruit flavors including grilled pineapple, baked apple and peach. Lengthy, honeyed finish with the perfect amount of toast."

The Wine News

"True to its designation, this includes up to 40 percent reserve wines in the blend, which contribute a comforting richness to contrast the bright, green apple fruit. It has a plump, ginger cream flavor, the acidity chalky and dry enough to make that plumpness austere. Great with oysters, especially Alaskan oysters."

Wine & Spirits

"Yellow-gold. Pungent aromas of orange pith, apple and yellow plum, with subtle nuttiness and a touch of baking spices. Ripe but lively on the palate, offering juicy orchard fruit flavors and a jolt of tangy citrus zest. Offers a harmonious blend of richness and energy, finishing with very good clarity and spicy persistence."

International Wine Cellar

“A rare new Champagne success story, this gorgeous mis en cave, bottled and cellared in 2001, has matured into a rich, floral, hazelnut-scented wine with real pedigree.”

Anyone know if this is store specific?

Is it decent stuff or not very nice? Never tried it before

Good champagne - a genuine discount unlike many of the 'half price' offers.
This seems to be a discontinued line, only where there is any stock left.

You've got to be mental or neanderthal to fall for this rubbish!!

Basically it's a cheap bottle of sparkling wine.
