La Closerie Fac-simile Extra Brut Pinot Meunier Rosé Champagne 2017

Don’t mind the label! Easily, along with Selosse, my favorite Rosé. IMO, there’s those two and then everyone else. Probably a common consensus. I love the bracing acidity and tension that compliments the super rich strawberry & raspberry fruit, chalky minerality and sea spray salinity. There’s superb midpalate intensity and density, that’s concluded with a finish that just doesn’t let up. It will certainly age very well, but it’s so enjoyable now. Begs for a Burgundy glass. — a month ago

I love his La Closerie but haven’t had the rosé. Have you tried Ulysse Collin’s rosé? Extremely unique and very vinous. Toes the line between red burgundy and rosé champagne.

Brut Blanc de Noirs 1er Cru Champagne Pinot Noir

Popped and poured. In the glass, a bright, golden peach color with a persistent mousse. On the nose, some marzipan, rose and brioche. The palate is electric; laser-cut with lime citrus, citrus pith and absolutely loaded with limestone minerals. Super fresh with bracing acidity. The finish is long and zippy. This is not what I expected from a BdN…but I like it! Disgorged February 2017. — a month ago

New tete de cuvee from Caillez Lemaire and their new highest end bottling. And it is STUNNING. The nose jumps out of the glass with all types of screaming minerals and wet earth. Spice. Green apple. Endless complexity. Sickness. It’s wafting and so so aromatic. Super yeasty. A nose that is dripping with character. Herbs as well. So so deep. Just an insane nose. 9.6. Only open 5-8 minutes and it’s changed 5-6 times. Sickness. Virginia was “hoping” I would like it. I wish I could be even as half as humble as her! Wow. That palate has flavor! Flava in my ear as the acid gets to my ear. RIP Craig Mack. Anyway this is bananas. Amazing sap and power. So sappy. Concentrated and so pure. Painfully intense. Wow, huge spice on the finish. So fresh and precise and wow is this long. What palate presence. Nose gets tons of saline and iodine and the palate develops a mineral sweetness that is stunning. Wow. This is sick. The palate presence of great BDB cannot be denied. A masterpiece. — 5 days ago

Brut Champagne Rosé 2002

Gorgeous stuff. Delicate nose of strawberry and floral notes. The palate is softening but has great tension and minerality but delicious berry fruit. A long way to go but this is lovely — a month ago
