Bagrationi 1882 Classic Extra Dry Republic of Georgia

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Assertively aromatic with an array of notes that range from slightly oxidized roasted nuts and cured meats to dried herbs, honey comb, and peach fruits all topped with a touch of lime preserves. Gently sweet on the palate, this bottle has been around for some time showing a softening of the bubbles and a very smooth and attractively opulent mouthfeel. There’s some lovely fruit here, a bit of quince, something vaguely sweet, green apples and pithy lemon notes along with some almond nougat. The finish is dry and long, with lots of leesy flavors, some hints of roasted chestnut and a nice mineral finale. This is not going to be to everyone’s liking but it is a unique and distinctive sparkling wine with plenty of complexity. 89pts
