From the importer - "We found Christian Madl through our friend Peter Schleimer, the editor of Vinaria, one of the most highly respected wine magazines in Austria. For the past 4 years, Madl has taken the number one and often the second and/or third spot in every blind tasting that they’ve done. Having just been in tasting in Champagne, we were floored by how good these wines were. They were the very best sparkling wines we’d tasted outside of France. They’re unique, exciting and full of energy."
