Apple and citrus mix with red berry suggestions on the nose. Hint of good funk and savory/ meaty quality. Cabbage patch kids and green apple candy on the palate. Yeasty, long prickly finish. Powerful and light; almost reminiscent of Dom. Disgorged 21, base 18. — a day ago
This is the 60 months on lees, vs the 48 month on lees & I believe a 36 month version exists. This is a 2014 base , March 2020 disgorgement. An explosive & complex nose that is the clue that you will be drinking something very special. Acid that electrifies the mouth￼. Concentrated flavors of lemon, chalk and pear. A rare combination of richness and weightlessness. An infant with a wonderful future. — 6 days ago
Pop and pour. It was a rough day, so perhaps take this note with a grain of salt, but...my wife says this is the best champagne we've had in recent memory, and I would describe this as Chevalier Montrachet with bubbles. On the nose: rich creamy vanilla lemon chiffon, soft honey, hazelnut, perfectly balanced richness and fruit. On the palate: soft mousse, fantastic acidity and richness, lemon, grilled nuts, fantastic density, and a soft, dark, finish. Wow, absolutely spectacular. — 19 hours ago
Nose has lemon slice, under-ripe yellow apple, moist chalk, wet salt and fresh brioche.
Palate has chalky, over-ripe yellow apple, sea spray, risen dough, solid acidity but not obtuse.
Pre-birthday dinner for our dear COVID bubble friend; we've only allowed one of our close friends into the house for almost the past year, tonight we're celebrating that he's one year older than me. 😉 — 21 days ago
Single vineyard "Les Belles Voyes" in the famous Grand Cru hillside of Oger. Pale lemon with fine creamy mousse and tiny rapid bubble flow, long lees aging. aromas stone fruits and blossom, bread dough and citrus. On the palate flavors of golden apple, peach, lemon citrus and honeysuckle with biscuit toast and nutty notes. Long finish, full-body ending with biscuit, mineral and citrus character. Outstanding! — 11 days ago
