Deep yellow center with a nice clear rim. Notes of apple, cedar, white peach, smooth stone fruits. FRESH …Seamless with light acidity & perfect balance. Consumed over three hours. Amazed on how this wine held up. At- Bern’s Steak House. @Mike R Happy Anniversary my very good friend! Love you buddy. — 9 days ago
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. — 2 days ago
A smaller, independent house located in the Côte des Bar, the majority of Gallimard’s vineyard holdings are planted to Pinot Noir with a little but of Chardonnay. This particular designation, their Blanc de Noir presents as a light copper, salmon color; it’s actually quite striking. I had to wonder if there was some skin contact and come to find out, they slightly macerate the grapes in the press…so there you have it. The nose is quite pretty with strawberry and white peach. The palate is quite round and well endowed with white peach; typical of wines from this most southern part of Champagne. That being said, there is a freshness here that I found rather compelling thanks to a lovely spine of acid. The finish provides saline minerals which I found rather endearing. No disgorgment data was obvious on the bottle, which, anymore these days is sort of a bummer. I think all producers should state at least some basic info on the labels of their NV wines. But I digress. This was an easy Champagne to like and definitely something I would drink again — 21 days ago
Nose: pleasant pine. Herbal.
Palate: massively dense. Pineapple. Huge acidity. Rich. Vibrant. Quite good. The density is really impressive but still pitch perfect acidic balance. Great winemaking.
Drink now between 0-60 minutes after open.

Concentrated and spicy cuvée. The primary notes are associated with a breeding showing notes of undergrowth, tobacco. Tanins require an hour of aeration to deploy. Classic Burgundy. Balanced
