The color is glowing gold with very fine bubbles and brilliant clarity. The nose is gorgeous with honeyed green apple, crème fraiche and brioche woven with smoky hazelnut and touch of almond. The palate is a joyride— super rich but still delicate, bursting with exotic citrus and dried flowers. Hints of caramel open up to a creamy, expansive mid-palate and mouth feel that is over-the-top.  The finish showcases the racy, elegant style we love, a reminder of the power and structure that this Grand Cru can deliver. Vibrant, pulsing acidity brings out grapefruit and crushed rock minerality all the way through an amazingly long, precise and utterly fresh finish. This is what it’s all about, the rarest of rare, worthy of a royal birth celebration but something you deserve to drink whenever you feel like living the good life is in order!!
