“...the quality has never been better. A foaming, lively wine, the nose says “Champagne” loud and clear via biscuit, citrus and white - flower aromas of appealing delicacy. And the creamy, super-fine palate has an elegant balance of fruit and yeast-derived qualities.”
Rating 86 - Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate #180, Dec 2008
The NV Imperial is a straightforward, tasty Champagne made in a easygoing style, with good length and a clean, refreshing finish. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.
