Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2008

Stellar. Toasted hazelnuts, lemon curd, methyl anthranilate. Super fine bubbles that take you to the still zesty ripe Meyer Lemon finish. I recall when we had a bottle of this upon release I preferred the freshness then. This has been stored in our eurocave since we bought it from the reps at a party @sigh in Sonoma (Highly recommended btw - Thanks Jayme!) Here’s to 20 more years Mia ❤️ — 2 days ago

Collection 242 Champagne Blend

Pale gold with a constant stream of tiny, active bubbles. The nose is customarily stately and quite pretty with an abundance of apples at first whiff. A bit of lemon and biscuits come to play along with pears. The nose definitely matures in the glass over time revealing more chalk and stone as times goes on.

The new cuvée from Louis Roederer that focuses on individuality from one year to the next. A brand new blend based on the 2017 vintage alongside a perpetual reserve and reserve wines. 42/36/22 PN/CH/PM with a moderate dosage of 8 g/l. This is certainly a more baronial champagne but there is a bit of unexpected zest here as well. A wine that takes a bit of time, and probably years, to fully come alive and strut her stuff but it’s drinking quite well right now.

The palate features a burst of clean citrus fruit initially. Followed by a nice backbone of thankfully understated oak. Baked bread and Granny Smith apples with a touch of cinnamon. Something new from an old house and done in style. These are truly fun.

Aux Pierres Javernières Morgon Gamay 2020

See previous entry.
Still pretty spot on review.
This bottle may have been opened a bit colder, straight out of the keeper.
Still great red/black fruits and chewy.
Granite in your mouth. A very tactile wine. Announces it’s presence without taking over. Refreshing & bright.
Great stuff.

Bright Ruby color with aromas of fresh red fruits and hints of floral spice. On the palate flavors of cherry, raspberry and currants with notes of pepper spice, good acidity and balance. Medium finish, soft tannins, ending with a juicy fruit and floral character. Nice value, easy drinking. Drink now no aging benefit. — 9 days ago

On the palate flavors of apple, melon and lemon citrus with notes of honey and vanilla oak. Medium+ finish, vivid acidity and ends with minerality. Consistent quality! Nice! Good value! — 18 days ago

Well if you don’t want to spring for the real stuff this is a great alternative: med sized bubbles, mild yeast note, golden apples & lemon verbena, some mineral - pleasant & unobtrusive, zippy bracing acidity w/citrus on mid palate leading to clean finish. — 4 days ago
