When life hands me lemons, I’ll just crack open a bottle of bubbly and celebrate instead of wallowing in self-pity đŸ™‚ This bottle of vintage Gatinois had a crystal clear golden yellow core with fine, persistent bubbles. Pronounced ripe red apples, bosch pears and a slight yeastiness surfaced later. Similar flavors on the palate with nuances of lemon pith aftertaste and broader than its NV Brut I tasted not too long ago. Med+ acidity; med+ length. Its steely character isn’t quite something I would associate with something that’s made primarily with Pinot Noir, but it was bloody tasty! I should thank Amanda for introducing this RM champagne to me a couple of months ago!
