This fragrant sparkler boasts layers of alluring aromas including bread crust, white spring flowers, cake spices, grapefruit and alpine herbs. The palate doles out succulent yellow peach, toasted almond, white pear and a hint of saline. Vibrant acidity and an elegant, lively mousse brighten the creamy flavors. It's delicious now but shows aging potential. Drink through 2020.
