'This bubbly has a vibrant light golden hue with a green edge. The mousse is exceptionally fine and consistent. The aromas are those of lightly toasted almonds, lemon preserve and a hint of fresh green apple. The palate is a wonderful interplay between silky liquid, crystalline acidity and fine mousse. Typical flavours include freshly baked Gougère, green apple, lemon preserve. Hints of celery salt provide a zipped saline finish.' – Tokara

Tasting notes on the 2012 vintage:
'Elgin blanc de blancs sparkling, 2012’s chardonnay is concentrated lemon preserve, oaked 15 months, 48 months on lees in bottle. There’s richness plus acid’s steely precision: toasted brioche, a honey overlay, flavours that never end. Elegance yet power.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'Recently disgorged after eight years on lees, Tokara's all-Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs is a superb bubbly that's toasty, dry and very complex, showing dried mushroom notes, some barrel-fermented spice and a bone-dry finish. Classy stuff. Drink 2019-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 94/100
