Very subtle aromatics offer up notes of green tea and herbs over white fruits that recall pears. The feel in the mouth is really elegant with a fine mousse and nuanced notes of toasted almond, juicy tart pear, peach and gooseberry. This is almost weightless in the mouth with a long finish that combines mineral and almond notes with notes of ripe gooseberry. Lovely texture and complexity here. 92pts

Tasted at winery. Very impressive bubbly that shows a lot of maturity (you can tell it was aged a few years). Dry with yeasty bread smell and taste. They combine to offer a subtle caramel flavour. Very nice finish.

Crisp and sleek, with lively ginger and spice aromas and vibrant citrus, lemon curd and hazelnut flavors. Drink now.

Sleek and minerally, with floral citrus and yeasty apple aromas and focused flavors of lemon and ginger that linger toward the fresh finish. Drink now through 2013.

The refined texture recommends this brut, which is mainly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with a splash of Pinot Meunier. Itandrsquo;s an elegant wine, rich in citrus fruits, green apples, raspberries, smoke and creamy yeast, but itandrsquo;s very young and aggressive. Needs time. Cellar through 2012.

Etoile is defined by its subtle nuances, understated power and perfect balance. An elegant cuvandeacute;e, with a bouquet of citrus and magnolia enhancing an endless creamy finish.

Wine Tasting Notes:Tiny bubbles elevate a complex bouquet of almond, honey, and buttered toast with a distinctive hint of citrus blossom that arouses the senses. toile's structure is long, soft, and creamy with flavors of fuji apple, candied ginger, and a savory hazelnut spice. These flavors intensify across the palate, building to a lingering yet, lively finish.

Made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with a splash of Pinot Meunier, this bubbly is, in a word, delicious. Itandrsquo;s so easy to drink, you canandrsquo;t put the glass down. Shows classic Champagne structure, with refined bubbles and brisk acidity. But the raspberry, strawberry, lime and apple flavors are pure California.

Tiny bubbles elevate a complex bouquet of honey, butterscotch and toasted hazelnuts. A myriad of flavors evolve on the palate including baked pear, apple crisp and ginger honey flavors. These flavors intensify across the palate and combined with etoile's creamy and seamless structure, continue to evolve through the ingering, savory finish

Tasting Notes:

Tiny bubbles elevate an attractive bouquet of ginger and brown spice. Appealing baked apple, honey and cinnamon flavors meld seamlessly with nutty caramel flavors gained from extended sur lees aging. The creamy and seamless structure combined with balanced acidity carries these flavors through the lingering finish.
