Brut Cramant Blanc de Blancs Champagne Blend 2012

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. 😉

Special Club Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay 2008

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. — 4 days ago

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! — 14 days ago

Le Mesnil Sur Oger Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay

NV, but back label had the date 04/04/08 and it’s a beautiful bottle of champagne. Yellow color hints at the intense yellow fruit—mellow, yellow peach and nectarine, gentle but persistent, layered soft delicious fruit. Really a delicious bottle that rewarded cellaring, as do many NVs. — 2 days ago

'S' Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil Brut Chardonnay 2002

A beautiful fresh nose. Limestone, white flowers, hints of the seashore. A clean berry fruit flavor, rounded and achingly gentle but real presence behind it all. Subtle but delicious. — 13 days ago
