"Lively and appealing, offering citrus and raspberry fruit, with spice and cinnamon accents. Drink now. 850,000 cases made. –TF" (WS)

"GOOD VALUE, Gentle touches of yeast are juxtaposed with a modest measure lemon-lime fruitiness here, yet, while the wine is fairly mute in the ways of complex champenization, it is clean and crisp with a nice sense of balance and plenty of insistent, tiny bubbles. It will make a refreshing, very priceworthy foil to any number milder foods and goes down wonderfully easy on its own. Reviewed: November 2015" (CG)

"Earthy and doughy aromas lead to subtle, crisp apple and bright lemon flavors in this very good, go-to wine that has lasting fine-beaded bubbles. It tastes dry and refreshing and feels crisp and lively on the palate." (WE)
