Lemons and not too sweet. Not very yeasty. you'd be hard pressed to find another actual Champagne for $20 that drinks like this. A superb value that demonstrates what Costco does best: best value for money.
Initially, I really wasn't liking this wine too much. It was just too big and wooly. After an hour or two it had come together and was all about the blueberries, herbs and licorice. It's apparent that this is a bigger style of CdP. Came off as a bit hot for me. This isn't really the style of CdP that I really go gaga over--that tends to be the spicy, cherry raspberry style. For $25, I suppose this is okay. I think there are more interesting wines to be had at that price point. For what it's worth, Sarah liked this wine a lot.
