Nose smells a bit dosagey and creamy. But under that a massively intense minerality that is floral and high toned. Really clear and deep. But needs air for complexity to develop I think. Palate is terrific. Lots of 15 razors and angles. Loads of lime pith and some rock candy note on the finish. Delicious and very young. Elegant and long with cracking acids. Really impressive. Persistent with lovely citrus developing. — 2 days ago

Pure but simplistic. A little rough or coarse around the edges. I disagree with 94 points #Parker because while pure and clean, it is overly stoic and slightly boring and lacks complexity. #calatayud #garnacha — 23 days ago

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. — 3 days ago

'Special Club' Les Fortes de Terres Brut 2015

Well they’ve done it again. Who is they? Why Cédric Moussé and the Club Trésors de Champagne of course. Another superstar bottle from them.

A muted pale lemon color with an effusive stream of tiny bubbles. Aromas of honeyed almonds, peaches, and crushed herbs. Fresh cherries and apricots sparkle here. Toasty brioche bread and chalky minerality show after some time with green apples being quite dominant after receiving some air.

The Master of Meunier and here it shows. 100% Pinot Meunier from the village of Cuisles located in the Vallee de la Marne. This Special Club offering is from one plot of land, giving it its name, Les Fortes Terres. Disgorged on 10/21/19 with a dosage of 1 g/l, this is refreshingly stark with beautifully racy acidity.

Full bodied and bold on palate, the complexity and purity of the Meunier shines through. Butterscotch and apples start the party off with more cherries and citrus playing along. A nice long, dry finish. Vibrant and captivating. Moussé and Special Club champagnes never disappoint.

Just because it's 25 degrees outside doesn't mean that I cannot enjoy a good glass of port 🔥

Already starting to develop some amber colors and complexity but still has a well defined core of primary fruit. Killer nose of wet cardboard and autumn leaves. I'm now going to sink deep into this bottle 🍷😂 happy weekend everybody
