La Closerie Fac-simile Extra Brut Pinot Meunier Rosé Champagne

LC17 Fac-Simile is evolving beautifully in bottle with a multidimensional expression of smoky red berry fruit, chalky minerality and sea spray-like salinity with a savory Meunier edge. One of the most distinctive and recognizable Rosé Champagne’s in the biz and growing more elusive by the day. — 8 days ago

La Grande Année Brut Champagne Blend 1996

From magnum, the 1996 Grande Année pours a brilliant pale gold color with a persistent mousse. Initially, the wine showed more oxidative notes but it freshened up considerably with air (in fact, a tiny amount was leftover for the next morning and it remained brilliant, racy even!). On the nose, notes of almond, citrus, honey, chalky minerals and brioche. On the palate, wine is developing with absolutely brilliant acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is long and zippy. The 1996 vintage is simply amazing. Here we are, 28 years past vintage and this bright and full of life! Granted, it’s a magnum, but still. Drink now with patience or enjoy through 2046+. — 3 months ago

Cuvée Prestige 1er Cru Brut Champagne Blend

Wonderful! They talk about Champagne that “belongs on the dinner table,” and this is one. We paired it with a Korean roast pork (Bo Ssam) and it was magnificent. Bright and powerful, it was the perfect fool for the rich and delicious pork. I’m pretty sure it would be just as tasty if you drank it on its own! — a month ago

Yes @Peter van den Besselaar my wife and I just came back from the Rothko exhibition in Paris, bought this champagne from a fantastic shop in the 13th arr. called Delicatessen Cave, well worth a visit 🙌
