Delamotte Blanc De Blancs NV Champagne,
$21.24-$24.99 (375ml), 91 points, poured a light gold color clearing toward the rim, and with a deep head of foam erupting from plentiful small bubbles which quickly transitioned to large intermittent bubbles.
VG, yes indeed, the nose was toasty apple pie and yeast.
Light, crisp, bright acidity, and palate fizzy with excellent flavors reflective of the nose all of which were impressive.
Finished long on an aftertaste reminiscent of pie crust pastry and a spot-on 12% (dry) alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my Pad Thai.
Comments: Excellent wine, but still pricy, which makes my point about sourcing other bubblies from Austria, Spain, Italy, Australia, New Mexico, California, and the North West.
