Disgorged 11/10, I like this even more than the ’06. It’s all the Pinots (including Chardonnay) and a teensy bit of GrüVe,
and this is the closest Austrian sparkling wine has ever come to Champagne, not just in graciousness and class, but in
actual flavor. It could almost – almost – be mistaken for Hébrart’s “Selection.” Mirabelles, sweet hay, scallops, cookiedough,
seductive stuff! More overt fruit than Champagne (which might be the GrüVe) and perfectly calibrated rs – his
most elegant and gregarious yet.
