Had this for Elyse’s gallery signing dinner at Libertine. Somewhat acidic with a bright balance. Great with lighter food. — a month ago

Muito delicado, perfumado e profundo. Mereceria nota maior se não fosse um amargor forte no retrogosto. — 2 years ago

The Vinloq System was designed to be used on still wines only. However, sparkling wines are amazing
👅This is a great summer champagne and it combines crisp flavors with a touch of oxidation and solid minerality.
Honey crisp apple, even cider, and bruised apples are featured. Quite powerful personality. Lemon peel sweeps the palate clean on the finish.
Develops some creaminess as it warms

These Ruppert-Leroy champagnes are so very distinctive, aren’t they? As soon as you open one, you can tell this is going to be an experience. An almost peachy gold color with very, very faint green specks. Impressively paced tiny bubbles. The nose is straight RL with hay and strawberry. Old wood and citrus. These aromas do not come immediately, it’s more than a bit shy and takes plenty of time to get going. Let it sit for a while and you’ll be rewarded.
This beauty is pure tension and drama and I’m all the way here for it. 100% Pinot Noir from the La Fosse Grely lieu dit in the village of Essoyes in the Aube. A sans soufre wine with zero dosage disgorged in late 2020. Very energetic and thrilling, especially the longer you spend time with it.
Quite autolytic in profile and very unique, but the important thing is that it’s delicious. The acidity is racy and lively and on the palate, this becomes amazing after an hour or two. The cherries and raspberries take a backseat to wood, spice, and everything nice. Fantastic length. This is not a wine made for everyone to be honest but it is glorious stuff for the rest of us. — 8 months ago
