Love LC19. It’s killer tonight, even more expressive than the last time I had it flaunting deep, powerful layers of ripe orchard fruit with smoky minerals, toasted hazelnuts and exotic spices. The palate is impeccably structured and concentrated with a satiny texture and vibrant energy that gives way to a saline and mineral laced finale. Pinot Meunier from the master, it just can’t be matched. This is the best release since LC13. — 21 days ago
Strawberry rhubarb, some funk, some sweet tart. My kind of glou glou — 10 months ago
Medium Ruby with complex aromas of ripe red fruits, floral spice and cedar notes. On the palate layered flavors of ripe cherry, plum and blackerry with notes of cacao, vanilla, spice and oak. Fine drying tannins, still tight, long savory finish, ending with fruit, sweet spice and slight earthy mineral notes. Very nice! — 6 months ago
One of the most distinctive and recognizable Rosé Champagne’s in the biz and growing more elusive by the day, LC18 Fac-Simile is superb today and continues to evolve beautifully with a multidimensional, vibrant and layered expression of its rich and floral red berry fruit, chalky minerality and sea spray salinity that lead to a long and exhilarating finale. So good 🤗 — 6 months ago

The palate is delicious straight out of bottle open for hour or two. It is lush and rich. Fruit of, blackberries, black plum, plum, boysenberries, dark cherries, raspberries and hints of blueberries. Black cherry cola/licorice, touch of tar and anise, soft sandalwood, herbal notes, light, fresh mint, forest floor, dark chocolate, caramel, dry top soil, moist clay, soft and faint limestone minerals, lavender and violets for days mixed with dark red florals. The acidity is magnificent. There is great balance and length. The finish beautiful mixed ripe fruits, excellent florals and lasts minutes. Delicious!
This is showing well today and will be hard to resist opening now, but patience will be rewarded. This one still has not closed down in bottle yet.
This is the only one I bought. Hard to resist. — 5 months ago
