This was stunning. Beautiful balance, fine bead, and delicate mousse. Faint aromas of pears, and some fresh brioche. The flavor were delicate, clean, and refreshing with a pure beam of ripe pear throughout. I detected a bit of zingy ginger in the finish. Well worth the money, an undeniably special bottle of bubbles. Vintage 2009 is WA93+; 2008 is WA92. Consistently high standard Champagne.
