"The first impression in the glass is of practically no oxidation, with bright yellow-green hues. The foam is dense and persistent, providing an inkling of its structure in the mouth. Looking at the centre of the glass we can see a uniform line of microscopic bubbles rising to the surface. The nose is dominated by tangy fruit and floral aromas. In the background we find fermentative notes from the wine's transformation in the bottle (honey, vanilla, liqueur). Honeyed yet fresh in the mouth, thanks to its significant acidity. The combination of fruit, acidity and fine lees results in a surprising sensation of fullness that invites one to continue tasting it. The fruity notes return in the aftertaste, with predominant spices that, for several seconds, leave a very pleasant memory." —winemaker
"Light yellow. Fresh, mineral-accented citrus and orchard fruits on the intensely perfumed nose. In a dry, racy style, offering bitter citrus pith and quinine flavors that deepen on the back half. Spicy ginger and white pepper notes add bite to the finish, which leaves a dusty mineral quality behind. This wine's primary fermentation took place in large French oak vats, where it then spent another six months before being bottled for the secondary fermentation. It was then held for 14 more months before disgorgement. Drinking window: 2016 - 2020." —Josh Raynolds, Vinous

"Leesy, yeasty apple and pear aromas are a touch funky yet sophisticated. Made in Rioja, so it's based on Viura, this is cushioned but zesty on the palate, with lively bubbles. It tastes complex and a touch sour, with notes of apple cider and apricot. Briny in flavor and solid in feel on the finish." —Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
