NV Nicolas Feuillatte Brut 12%

Notes of quince, apple and a hint of white mushroom all topped with a ribbon of sweet vanilla/lemon taffy. Bright with plenty of acid that lends this a dry profile, though there is a nice touch of sugar here accenting the lemon, apple and lightly toasty bread notes. The finish is nicely vibrant and full of lemony acids and decent sugar driven length that ends with a flash of baked apple. Easy, gentle style with good flavors. 88pts
