This is a superb Blanc de Blancs that boasts great minerality, texture and intense fruit flavor. It's a finely structured wine, now approaching maturity with its apple, citrus and green pear notes. Lingering in the mouth, it is a beautifully long-lasting, pure wine. Drink until 2018 and probably beyond.
