Tasting notes:

The base for this wine is the same as the 2013 Brut Zero but we added a small amount of Pinot noir to give it just a touch of pink and a slight dosage at disgorging to craft a sparkling wine with a softer mouth feel and surprisingly different aromatics than its sibling. The tiny, but plentiful, bubbles in this wine carry lightly floral aromas of violets and rose petal as well as a hint of strawberries and cream. There is a slight salinity that shows on the nose and the palate. It is soft and supple on your tongue with stone fruit flavors of apricot and peach. The finish is quite long and evolves to show strawberry and soft citrus notes. This is a perfect wine for celebration, good on its own or paired with a wide range of food. Truffle potato chips anyone? (Updated 7.14.18 - Alan)

Terroirist.com: Pale copper color. Bright nose of strawberries, raspberries, rose petals, with bread crumbs, chalk dust and mint notes. Light-bodied, bright acid, fine bubbles, but there’s a nice creamy depth. Lemon meringue, sweet red apples, white cherries, the fruit is laced with chalky, mineral notes. Lovely depth, lots of chalky-dusty vibes, this is delicious, zippy, complex stuff. 11.9% alcohol. From the Leonardo Julio Vineyard (90 points IJB) Terroirist.com
