    92 Le Sousa Cuvée des Caudalies Le Mesnil sur Oger Les Chétillons (Sparkling white)

    Golden yellow. Leesy bruised apple aromas with warm spiced vanilla oak, quince, dried apricots, tropical flowers and Sorrento lemons. On the palate, lovely smooth, rich, silky vanilla mouth-coating richness on the palate, beautifully spiced and elegant acidity, balanced and exciting. Full bodied ripe apples, orchard fruit, green apples, perfumed florals and aromatic citrus finishing with crisp and crunchy herbal salinity. Mouth-watering, fresh and long, balancing perfumed rich, ripeness, beautiful acidity, weight and complexity. So much depth and complexity. Definitely a wine to appreciate slowly - but I will happily finish the bottle.
