He says: I can’t really say I’d ever buy this for the price as I find it to be a very bad value proposition. The palate is very fruit primary and lacks the complexity of autolytic flavours one hopes for when paying for high-end grower Champagne. I couldn’t get past the horribly tart finish. It’s alright, but definitely not for me.

She says: There was a definite tartness to this bubbly with not enough ripe fruit to counter the mouth watering acidity. It was not as balanced as the other wines and unfortunately, it did not have the finesse to go with its pretty colour.

  • Weird, I had high hopes for this. I’ll post my thoughts when I do taste it but now I’m scared. I hope this is bottle variation.
