Pale lemon with aromas of tropical and citrus fruits with notes of floral and honey. Rich with flavors of peach and mango with honeysuckle, citrus and toasty biscuit notes. Long finish, fine bubbles and mousse ending with slight sweetness. Very nice!

My go-to, readily available champagne for special events. It’s reasonably priced and is bustling with wonderful fruit and crispness. Much better than the entry level Moet.

Lovely fresh fruity and lightly sweet champagne. I am no big fan of semi sweet but on a hot spring day this one was fresh and lovely, deep gold, spring flowers, lemon, apricot, honey, grape fruit, yeast and hint of minerals, medium body with little classical bubbles, lightly sweet yet fresh , due to the pleasant acidity. Fine semi sweet finish. My score 88, drink when you can ;-)

Too sweet for me. Not enough acid to balance it out

Believe it or not, this was the only halfway decent wine In QFC Factoria's cellar. I've had this before and thoroughly enjoy the Brut Imperial, but I found this one to be overly sweet. No terroir, just fruit. $46 / 88 pts

I am loving the sweetness that is available to the palate...this is definitely made for enjoying on its own. Cheers to my new job at A.I . Selections!
