  1. Boothby

    It is okay, I suppose. Just a bit too fruity

  2. Paul C (verified owner)

    This is a rather nice grower champagne. Green apples and bread on the nose; the palate has an initial citric bite, then a nice balance of those apples and a little minerality leading to a fairly crisp but full finish. The dosage is well-judged here, giving an interesting palate, but without becoming in any way cloying.
