Purchased locally for what I thought was a good price, this Champagne was pleasant. As a non-dosage Champagne, this was predictably dry and packed with both toasted nut and citrus flavors. Nice mid-palate and finish. Only minor issue for me was that the bead was too coarse, which made the texture a little too rough for me, but that might be splitting hairs. Very nice drink, but in the $40 price range, one can do better with other producers.
