Popped and poured. In the glass, a pale straw color. The nose was incredibly fresh, like a cool breeze on a Spring day. Notes of pomelo, kiwi fruit, and wet stone. On the palate, orange bitters, kumquat, lemons...seemingly all of the citrus fruits. Great acid contributes to a long, clean finish. I found this to be a more expressive showing than the last bottle, nearly 18 months ago. — 5 days ago
Dry and light and crisp. White cranberries and pear flowers. Apricot on the nose when first opened. Tart, and lively. Super easy to finish the bottle fast. Buy 2 at a time!
Would pair well with seafood, particularly one heavy on the butter. — 8 days ago
Needed air, this is a very young wine, opened up to dark fruits, very generous and full bodied palate, rich and wide, the texture is silky and almost thick, nice bottle as is but will wait for the others in this vintage.
Très jeune, a eu besoin d’air, fruits noirs, bouche généreuse, assez pleine et riche, texture veloutée et presque dense, très bien. 89-90

A pale straw color with a generous amount of tiny bubbles. A fine mousse and bead. This is an incredibly alive champagne and it starts immediately. Meyer lemons and tart green apples, along with smoke and mint on the nose. That wonderful citrus streak continues throughout.
100% Chardonnay primarily from Mareuil-sur-Ay and Chouilly. Family owned grower and one of my favorite producers with such consistent quality. Richer and fuller than many others, it’s round and vibrant. Lovely depth and acidity with a backbone of herbs and spices.
Chalky minerality and crystallized honey shine here. Beautiful toasted bread and almonds on display, along with more green apples and lemons. Apricots, plums, and peaches sing a lovely song. Chamomile and more honey on the long, exceedingly pleasant finish. A highly attractive pour. — 14 days ago
Globs of cassis with either tar or licorice (both?) bringing up in the rear. Tasty sour cherries give it a lively jolt. The juice totally saturates across one’s taste receptors and remains with you a good 90 seconds from down the hatch. Yes, it’s young....but, if its current structure continues hand in hand this is going to be a classic Morgan down the road. A gorgeous wine! — 2 days ago
