August 2013 Vintage.
Look: Champagne color indeed with load of carbonation. Thick swath of white small-bubbled head.
Smell: Not of a ton of depth but very nice sweet citrus, a little tart, a little yeasty.
Taste: Much like the nose. Not a lot happening but very nice.
Overall: Very nice. Gonna have to grab some and cellar.
