    Winemaker's Notes:

    The color is lovely light yellow, bright and sparkling. On the nose, a fruity, floral fragrance of lilies with a suggestion of fresh walnut. Small soft fruits and brioche grace the slightly woody palate. Very fresh, rich and delicate, crisp, with a lovely aroma of fresh fruit.

    The Cuvée Paradis is a magnificent wine, well structured, balanced and complex, full-bodied yet very delicate, lingering and full of harmony. The Cuvée Paradis is truly exceptional.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Pale gold. Sexy aromas of poached pear, fig nectarine, vanilla, and clove, with a note of Meyer lemon adding vibrancy. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering intense orchard and citrus fruit flavors and suggestions of vanilla pastry and buttered toast. Suave and seamless, with excellent finishing clarity and lingering spiciness.

    International Wine Cellar

    A lovely thread of ginger, star anise, cardamom and clove spice unravels through flavors of toasted almond, tangy apple puree, black raspberry, pastry, coconut and candied lemon zest. Like fine silk in texture, this remains mouthwatering through to the long, lasting finish.

    Wine Spectator

    A sumptuous wine that completely fills the mouth with its broad, gingery flavors, this oxidative Champagne emphasizes wood spice over freshness. Yet the acidity is there, adding a tart edge to the fruit and keeping the finish clean. Try it with foie gras.
