Appearance: Straw gold. Fine and persistent mousse.
Nose: Surprisingly earthy and rich; warm pastries. A little green apple note in the background. Almost a hint of soy sauce. This is a very distinctive champagne indeed!
Palate: Fruity yet quite savoury. Bready and yeasty, with notes tangy apples. A strong whack of lemon sherbet, elderflower. Meaty, full-bodied, Hoi Sin.
Finish: Fades on those hoi sin, umami-rich notes, a little fruit lingers too.
Overall: Fantastic stuff!
