James Suckling (93)- "This has a straw color with a yeasty, toasty and mineral nose of toasted sourdough, dried jasmine, dried pineapple, apple, lemon and slate. Some licorice, too. It’s medium-bodied with a creamy, caressing mousse and lively acidity. Excellent balance and length. Delicious now."
Wine Advocate (93)- "The Contratto 2016 Alta Langa Metodo Classico Blanc de Blancs Pas Dosé shows a pale pink presentation (it's a rosé, really) with a fragile and delicate bouquet. The wine releases aromas of citrus and orchard fruits, with some lightly toasted almond or breakfast brioche. To the palate, the wine is silky and fine with soft beading."
Wine Advocate (93)- "A soft and yielding sparkling wine that descends into a long array of orchard and stone fruit aromas. You get poached pear and Golden Delicious apple with crushed limestone and mineral at the edges. There is a unique nobility to this wine that comes across thanks to the rocky soils and high-altitude positioning of these Alta Langa vineyards."
