Produced by Freixenet, this wine has been awarded numerous awards, including a silver medal at 2014's International Wine Challenge and a bronze medal at 2014's Decanter World Wine Awards. Ludovic Petrow, sales manager for Time & Flow Champagne criticised the wine's nose, finding it insufficiently intense and expressive, while Stephanie Rigourd, wine director for The Raffles Hotel Singapore, found the nose to be vegetal and unpleasant. She also found the evolution of the wine to be flat, and the attack to be unpleasantly vegetal. Kadir also supports these points, finding the wine “short and uneventful”.
