Berlucchi Franciacorta Cuvee Imperiale Brut NV

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight on the nose with yeasty dough, sweet almond and ripe apricot fruit. Soft, supple and gently sweet on entry, this is rich with ripe peach and pear fruit. Very well-balanced, it’s neither sweet nor tart on the palate, just lush and giving with a bright, tense feel and gentle mineral hints on the back end that lead to a moderately long, brisk, yeasty yet fresh finish. Lovely and certain to be a crowd pleaser. 89pts
