Dom Ruinart Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2007

Belatedly celebrating @Deked1’s special day with his favorite bottle of bubbles! 🥂🥂

This wine was disgorged in 2017 after aging on the lees in Ruinart’s chalk cellars for a decade. It’s spent the last 5 years in the bottle.

With a pale gold hue, this wine is showing some delicious signs of age, but also remains incredibly vibrant.

It offers a fine mousse with rich notes of lemon curd, flint, hazelnut, marzipan, toast, and brioche. Yas!! 👏🏻 It’s so darn good. We don’t want this bottle to end.

I’m English by birth, so July 4th is not a good look for us. I’ll be keeping a very low profile on that day 🥲

Comtes de Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2005

Regardless of vintage it never disappoints. Beautiful combination of yeast and minerals with fruit playing a supporting role. Solid core of acidity. I’m sure more life ahead but enjoy now while your ‘06 & ‘08 mature — 3 days ago

Cuvée L'Artiste Blanc de Blancs Extra-Brut Champagne 1er Cru Chardonnay

LV10. Pop and pour. Stunner, but better on day 1 than on day 2. On the nose: soft florals, vanilla, lemon, lime. On the palate: soft mousse, lovely acidity, grapefruit pith, wet stone and a solid finish. Clashed a bit with some of the heat in some plates last night, but fantastic on its own. Seems to be peaking. — 7 days ago

Cuvée XIX Brut Champagne

For the fruit lovers, the yeasty boys, the acid freaks.

An even split of apple cores, mealy pear, luscious cherries, crusty sourdough, lemon and spice. Personality and complexity and layers to dissect - in the aromas, elegantly expressive. In the palette, powerful, concentrated, long.

Something for everyone.

Les Pierrières Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2014

The coveted 2018 disgorgement! 48 month sur lattes Les Pierrieres is a total stunner. Raring to go right out of the bottle, it’s simply just a complete Champagne. It displays a stunning crystalline purity and a seamless combination of richness and elegance. It’s layered with white flowers, fresh brioche, lemon candy and signature chalky minerals with fantastic persistence, cut and texture. A little age goes such a long way with these wines. Terrific. — 10 days ago

Essentiel Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay

I have not seen the bottling in the U.S. before and brought it back from a recent overseas trip.
Stone fruits commingling with citrus fruits with light brioche and ginger spice. Creamy yet robust. The freshness, purity, precision, and elegance are all there, which is why BdB is my favorite type of Champagne when done right.
17’ based wine with 30% reserve, disgorged in 21’.
And why not all Champagne bottling display the information already?

Initial Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Oxidative style, leaves open space in the barrels. Roasted nuts, baked fruit, sherry notes, brioche, baled apple tart, nice acid. Definitely a wine for food. — 18 days ago
