87 points. The aroma is quite pleasant with an almost Old World Blanc de Blancs quality to it. There are really nice sliced golden apple tones, some white floral notes, and a subtle bread dough quality. A good spin in the glass opens up some jasmine, rose petal, and red peppercorn aromas that add a very inviting complexity. The palate opens with a crisp bite of golden apple and a rich, creamy quality. Illinois wasn’t exactly the first place where I thought I would find a tropical flavored wine, but this is almost like taking a trip to the islands. There are lots of pineapple notes and marshmallows rolled in toasted coconut. There is a faint floral note and a bit of citrus on the finish, combined with a limestone minerality. This is a well made wine, very similar to a traditional Blanc de Blanc. It’s fresh and interesting with a good balance and a lasting finish. The $50 price tag is by no means cheap, and there have got to be hundreds of wines from California and France at the price point that can deliver this same level of quality, however, if you’re like me, and your obsessed with trying everything from everywhere, this is a solid buy.
