(From 2006 Vintage) Wonderful pale straw color with microscopic bubbles. Aroma of crisp apples and pear. Fruit on the tongue is balanced by buttered toast with a long finish. A fantastic domestic sparkling wine.
92 POINTS-WINE SPECTATOR, 94 POINTS-WINE ENTHUSIAST. This prestigious tete de cuvee honors the visionary work of Guy Devaux. The 2001 DVX offers a brilliant golden-yellow hue with a gentle stream of tiny bubbles. As is the tradition with DVX, this release is complex, rich and nicely balanced. Toasted brioches with a hint of oak spice greet you on the nose, followed by green apple, ripe freestone peaches and fresh rasberry on the palate. Enjoy a lovely vanilla creaminess on the mid palate that ends with a lingering, refreshing finish.
92 Points. Asian pear, toasty spice and Liam layered with lemon curd, hazelnut and brioche flavors that balance crisp acidity with a luscious texture. Drink now through 2014. Pair with oysters rockefeller, crab cakes and baked Brie.
