Brut Blanc de Noirs Champagne Pinot Noir 2015

Old gold bordering on copper in the glass. The nose is immediately expressive with notes of peaches, ocean mist, and red apples. Honeydew and plums all day with a light dusting of cinnamon. There’s a quintessential touch of hot buttered toast to compliment.

So classy and so well defined. This certainly grows in the glass over time and becomes even better than you expected and honestly, you expected a lot. 100% Pinot Noir from Premier and Grand Crus. Autolytic and full bodied, this is a powerful champagne that is still so young and fresh. Very zippy due to the low dosage. Years and years to go.

The fruit is more present on the palate with dried cherries and figs prominent. Orange peels and apples. A bit of warm spice on the long finish. Lovely, lovely stuff. Electric and alive.

Extra Brut Mareuil sur Ay Champagne Blend 2008

2008 doesn’t disappoint. My other bottles will lay down for another 5 years plus.

It is fresh, lush, rich with great o2. The flavors burst onto the palate. Bruised apple, Bosc pear, ginger ale to ginger, cream soda, cream, lemon, lime, orange citrus, biscuit, yeasty, limestone, chalk, saline, baguette crust, yellow & white florals, the acidity is outstanding. The finish is well balanced, structured, big structure and lasts two-minutes.

Pictures of my October visit Philipponnat. Pano from their Clos de Goisses of the beautiful Cote de Blancs, upward look at their Clos de Goisses, Clos de Goisses signage as you walk up to that vineyard and their cellar.

Really good w/ Himalaya Pink Salt Popcorn!!!

@Jay Kline that spends 12 years on lees. Despite that, 8-10 plus if you want it super special.
