I have waited so long for the new vintage of this wine and this release really takes the cake. You couldn't ask for a better champagne-style wine. I bought half a case just before new years when I got the email about the release and have already dwindled down to one bottle :( Compared to other more mainstream brands (at a fraction of the cost) this is by far my go to sparking right now.
