The palate is rich, lush, round, a touch gluey & full. Nice mousse, micro-oxygenation, slightly sour & bruised fruits Bruised golden apple & pear, overripe pineapple, lemon meringue, green apple, lime zest/candy, melted, salted caramel, honeysuckle/honey comb, white & yellow peach, inside banana peel, brown butter, caramelized brown sugar, nougat, hints of mint, sea fossils, gritty, penetrating chalkiness, grey volcanics, some white spice with nice lighter heat, vanillin, bread dough, yellow lilies, spring flowers with mixed floral greens.

Nice bottle and well priced at $38 w/ deluxe gift box.

Nice, almost did a vintage Roederer theme tonight, but I don't think '08 or '12 are ready yet and those are the only vintages in stock in our cellar.

L'APHRODISIAQUE CHAMPAGNE BRUT NATURE Pinot Noir Chardonnay 2012

9.6

Sunday bubble with the missus. Zero dosage, harvested 2012, 80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay. Golden yellow in the glass, shy smell upon opening with saline component. After 10 minutes the nose opened up with chamomile. Palate consistent with the nose, fine bubbles, with brioche, nutty, saline, oxidative chalk flavors. Beautiful stuff!

Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin

Vintage Brut Champagne Blend

Delightful! Paid $29 for a 375 ML bottle at total wine. This is right up there with the Moët. Mimi says they’re comparable and they’re about the same price. Would get it again and again.  — 9 days ago

Brut Rosé Grand Cru Champagne Blend

If you like your rose a little more serious and a less sweet, then you’ll love this. The nose is of red berries but the flavors in the mouth are not sweet, a nice toast lifted by a balanced amount of acid. Definitely would pair well with spicy or rich food. TBL — 9 days ago

Bouzy Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

It's been a long week of work for both my wife and me, only thing needed to help us ease our way into the weekend, is Champagne.

Prior notes still apply, wonderful bottle! Even better than earlier bottles, Gabriel Glas or a little more age, the world will never know.

Decanted ~2 hours, just perfect tonight.
