Straw gold. Fine bead. Yeasty marmite nose with apricots and stone fruits sitting nicely in the background. In the mouth, a touch oxidative, ripe stone fruits and more marmite yeast. Good length with the stone fruits and some florals lingering, nicely balanced with the acid.
Vertus, Champagne, France
