Decanter, 92 Points 

"A blend of 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir from Mendocino County with 10 g/L of residual sugar, aged a minimum of two years en tirage and six months under cork. 14,000 bottles were produced. Riveting aromatics of brioche, creme brule, and candied citrus. Broad and mouth-filling with a creamy mousse that, upon resolve, delivers a crisp wine with depth and textures of crushed river stones, layered with red berry fruit, apricots and tangerine notes, and nutty overtones on the finish." 

Wine Enthusiast, 91 Points 

A well-rounded, supple texture surrounds attractive toast and nut flavors in this suave and mouthfilling wine. Notes of biscuit, peach and toasted bread give it a nice sense of maturity and complexity.” 

Wine & Spirits, 91 Points 

"This is clean and crisp with rich undertones of brioche and lemon custard. It offers a balance of the soft and the lively, a refreshing sparkling wine to kick off a dinner party." 

James Suckling, 91 Points 

"Pleasant floral and yeast aromas with sliced grapefruit and lemon as well. Medium-bodied with quite a presence on the palate. Bright citrus and honeysuckle wash over the palate with a lifting, firm mousse. A hint of nutmeg, too. Well structured with good depth. Disgorged in 1/2021. Drink now." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"After approximately two years on the lees, there are notes of freshly baked bread and pastry that enhances the more fruit forward style of the wine. Finally, after several months on the cork, the wine develops caramel and hazel complexors." 

Alcohol: 12.5%
