Superb sparkler drinking perfectly at age 12. Reminded us of the '92 that we drank several years ago. Not quite as yeasty or full as that wine, but just as elegant, creamy-textured, delicate, delicious, and lovely to look at. Displays the festive, miniscule, persistent bubbles indicative of a top-flight sparkler. I don't think I'd ever get tired of this wine. I'd love to have the money to try, though. - HK 2002-09-29
