PN VZ15 Brut Champagne Pinot Noir

Had to pop one... way too early. Wine is glorious gold in glass... still tightly wound and reticent. Opened up over the course of an hour to display plenty of rich, ripe dark red and black fruit. Powerful weight, noticeable structure, vivid acidity. Long persistent finish. Think I’ll hold my remaining six. But kudos to a very influential house for bringing forth something totally new. Holds it own alongside Grand Annee and RD.

Chamery 1er Cru Brut C. de Rosé Blend

Beautiful as always. Some of the primary fruit notes are fading into the background, minerals becoming more prominent. Still, dominated by red fruit wrapped around a core of mineral and acid, though a bit more austere than the last bottle I tried. Intense acid makes this best with food. — 4 days ago

Cuvée Cuis 1er Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay

Double Magnum format; a delicious and exciting way to toast the bride and groom! Loads of citrus with a hint of brioche. A touch creamy. Long finish. A perfect aperitif but pairs deftly with any meal. — 3 days ago

Alexandra Grande Cuvée Rosé Champagne Blend 2004

Lovely bottle, which was given to us compliments of the club lounge concierge 🌹✨ This was my first time having this selection and it was quite delicious. Rich, deep, well-rounded, and plush. Paired nicely with a sushi presentation. — 11 days ago

We’ve had their N/V Blanc but, haven’t had their Rose in awhile. Quite good.

Mousse is very refined. Great mouthfeel. Blood orange, tangerine, rhubarb notes, poached strawberries, black cherries, watermelon near the rind, white spice, oyster shell, grainy chalk, grey volcanics, saline, dry yeast, baguette crust, mint with pink roses dominate with shades of red roses. The acidity is lively. The finish is, pleasantly rich, elegant, well balanced & polished persistent for minutes falling into minerals & spice.

Their rosé, in the right base year, can be spectacular!

Brut Blanc de Noirs Champagne

Bright, slightly rosy beige. Fine persistent bubbles and quickly dissipating white mousse. Abundant nose of Royal Anne cherry and ashy toast. Palate echoes the nose. Medium plus acidity (natch) with a moderately long dusty cherry finish. All of the complexity that a Blanc de Noirs should bring in a reasonably priced package. A great Champagne to enhance any meal or celebration. Drink it when you buy it, of course. — 9 days ago

No new words to describe how much we lo♥️ve this bottle tonight. All I can say is we're starting to get low on our stash, thankfully a restocking is in my future already... — 5 days ago

Yes I know! Kind of hoping I ordered a few cases too many from @Lyle Fass so that I can enjoy the excess for years!

Blanc des Millénaires Champagne Chardonnay 2006

🏅 Rating 94/100 (4,4⭐)

This is my first encounter with 2006 Charles Heidsiek Blanc des Millénaires⁣

I'm a big fan of 1995 which I tasted numerous times before. ⁣

My impression of 2004 was quite mixed. I did see the signature CH style to it, but I would prefer to keep it for a minimum of 5 more years in the cellar. I thought CH really rushed with it into the market.⁣

2006 release followed right after. I was even surprised why did they release it so soon. ⁣

I think I get the idea now. 2006 has everything you want. It has the ripeness of the fruit you expect from the warm vintage. Acidity is just right there. ⁣
Reductive style Chardonnay and signature popcorn flavour. Toasty and rich on the palate. That's exactly the blockbuster BdM we were all waiting for.⁣

So let's enjoy 2006 for the next 5 years till 2004 riches its full maturity!⁣

Brut Rosé de Saignée Champagne

A stunning rosé champagne. First off, there’s that amazing salmon color. Not a ton of bubbles but those that are there are tiny. Ridiculously deep nose featuring plums, dried cherries, and ripe strawberry. Fresh herbs, oolong tea, and rose petals compliment. It really is such a pretty and graceful bouquet.

100% Pinot Meunier, this is rich and delectable throughout. Creamy and sensual in the mouth, this is silky smooth. Zero dosage and quite fruity, the two Pinots really work their magic here. It’s very vibrant and generous.

Intense raspberries attack the palate, along with cherries. Traces of mild oak, freshly baked bread, and mint. Sassafras, creamy vanilla, crushed petals, and nuts. A really unique and delicious Grower champagne. Outstanding on every level.

Sounds incredible, I’ve never tried a 100% PM champagne as far as I know.. will have to seek this out!

Brut Champagne Blend

High-tone confectionary nose of green apple and buttered pastry with some complex, salty minerals. Thrilling aromas sets expectations that aren’t met on the palate. It’s relaxed and balanced with a creamy, sweet corn character, but sweetness is excessive given the moderate acidity. Not too complex but no complaints- very satisfying. — 13 days ago
