From mag. This is fantastic and getting better in the glad by the minute. This is about the age roses make sense. A supple and delicate nose with soft cherry, dried rose, wild strawberry. This is softened at the edges, very clear and balanced. Real complexity but subtle and light and long. Delicious, and getting better and better. — 13 days ago

Happy Global Champagne Day! 🍾🥂
To celebrate the occasion, we’re having some of our favorite champagne — Ruinart, Blanc de Blancs. Made entirely of premiers crus Chardonnay grapes that hail primarily from Montagne de Reims and Côte de Blancs, Champagne, France.
Love the autolytic character, richness, and tart stone notes. Soft bubbles, toasty almonds, brioche, bread dough, biscuit, dried white blossom, peach, apple, and pear.
NV (non-vintage). ABV 12.5%.

In a wine lovers journey there are a handful of bottles which evoke reflection from the sheer taste… Maybe its history and taste captured in a bottle perfected by time; maybe it is just the moment. Nonetheless this is one of those bottles for me.
The color is on par with a nice gold tone and only the last surviving bubbles rising. The nose is opulent with citrus, apple, apricot, almond and toast. The mouthfeel with crisp red apple, orange peel, brioche, almond, and a truffle-like finish which endures. This is vibrant, lush, rich and beautifully aged Champagne.
Now, for that reflection part, back in ’98 when the grapes that make up this bottle were ripening I was a young lad from a small town about to graduate high school with too many decisions, plans, and expectations. Albeit, I had never tasted Champagne. Now, where were you back in 1998? — 2 months ago

Wow, this is a big pinot with a marvellous tannin.
Bright and quiet vibrant.
There's leather, cinnamon, forest floor, musk.
White pepper, very floral, a blueberry with raspberries around. The green balsamic side is a delicate Thai mint rather than a straightforward eucalyptus. Tobacco leaves and more notes given by the very present oak component.
I trust this wine will find a better harmony on the sweet side in a while, perhaps when the tannin will soften.
However this is very different vest from the 19s and the 17s., more complex already and even though I believe this wine will age gracefully for a bit I find it already on a secondary stage compared to the formers. I am very fascinated, it reminded of a Vosne from Dom. Laurent.
Long after taste, excellent! — a month ago
