Brut PN VZ16 Blanc de Noirs Pinot Noir

David T

15 person Champagne tasting with friends.

The Bollinger PN was crafted to show the beauty of Pinot Noir. They succeeded. Beautiful cuvée that shows no weaknesses start to finish. Wire to wire, no peaks or valleys.

Sir Winston Churchill Brut Champagne 2013

Quite light straw colour , very fine persistent mousse . Quite discreet on the nose at first , then camomile , white flowers then deeper yellow fruits, brioche and citrus peel . More yellow fruits on palate , citrus peel. Dense , broad shouldered and mouth filling are all adjectives that come to mind but all balanced by good acidity, tension, plus lots of backbone . More mineral with slightly toasty brioche touches on the finish, good length , though not as long as the Bollinger Grande Année 2014 had last week. Really young , needs time but shows it’s quality . Better in 7- 10 years , I would imagine , will plateau for a further 10 at least — 8 months ago

James Bond 007 Brut Champagne 2011

Caramel nose. Sweet and slightly dry at the same time with a lot of carbonation. Fantastic storage box and great for any 007 fan — a month ago

La Côte aux Enfants Coteaux Champenois Pinot Noir 2014

It's holding up well. Fruits in my nose and palate are in the background (cherry and raspberry). Leather, herbs, pepper. This pinot is light and airy. Low acidity as far as I'm concerned. I do not mind. — 9 months ago
