" Disgorged in February 2018, the latest release of Vesselle's NV Brut Réserve bursts from the glass with a lively bouquet of mandarin oil, fresh peach, minty red berries and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with ripe acids, a youthfully frothy mousse and a pretty core of fruit that's still a little reserved after its comparatively recent disgorgement, concluding with a precise but compact finish. I suspect this will show quite a bit better after another year on cork."
