(750ml bottle) clear gold, bright, fine offwhite bubbles. Nose of Chardonnay, grapes, Brett, light bourbon characters, floral leaves. Complex. Taste is vinous, white wine, lightly tart, citrusy Brett, very deceptive alcohol, the grapes hide it so well. Very carbonated and super dry.

Bottle at North Bar, Leeds (Brooklyn and Nogne night). Aroma is stunning fruity funk - loads of juicy esters and yeast notes. Taste is truly brilliant, apricot, orange, some tart apples too. Like a 10% gueuze. Hint of sweetness, all the more remarkable as Gartett told us there was "no residual sugar". Dry sharp finish. This is utterly awesome.
