Quite oaky

This is one of my favourite non-vintage Champagne; it is a bargain when purchased in France.

The nose is really quite fruity, but some toasty oak is also very noticeable. The palate also has plenty of fruit, good acidity and a finish that leaves you picking oak splinters out of your throat. The oakiness is balanced with the fruit, though, so this is really quite a nice drink.
