Pale golden color, long-lasting streams of pin-point bubbles.
Melon and citrus smells.
Pear flavor, oaky toasty character in the background.
Good bottle for $67.50. It occurs to me that in 2002 Richard Juhlin published '4000 Champagnes' and in his 2008 'Champagne Guide' he claims to have enjoyed 6500. Perhaps it's time I consolidated what I've learned I most enjoy rather than keep trying to find one better bottle. But not right away, maybe later.
