#5 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2020 - 94pts WE


94pts Wine Enthusiast
This inaugural release is stunning and incredibly impressive—a wine well worth stocking up on for the price and quality. A beautiful jasmine aroma leads to marzipan, peach and cherry flavors as lively acidity envelopes the palate. It’s a blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir.

92pts Tasting Panel
This blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir produced in the méthode Champenoise comes in at a low 12% ABV. The tiny bubbles leave behind refreshingly clean notes of apple pie, peanut brittle, and lemon chiffon. Nicely balanced, with a finish of apricot and biscuit.

Wine Spectator
 Appealing for its fresh apple and raspberry flavors, which are accented by brioche and spice. Drink now.

Winemaker Notes

This perfect introduction to Paula Kornell’s sparkling wines has all the elegance, refinement,and freshness that one would expect from the best bubbles. Its racy acidity makes the wine lively and refreshing, while the small amount of residual sugar gives the wine weight and depth alongside the aromas of lemon pith, fresh peaches, just-ripe apricots, toast, acacia, and honeysuckle.

Ideal for a Sunday afternoon in the garden, a weekend picnic, or at the beginning of a meal, this approachable and highly drinkable wine will satisfy all tastes.
