Aÿ Grand Cru Fût De Chêne Brut Champagne Blend 2013

In magnum and brought back from France by a friend on a recent trip. Big and bold, yet with tons of elegance. Stone fruit, flowers, some salinity/umami, loooong finish. MV13 — 8 days ago

Anecdote Lieu Dit Les "Varosses" Champagne

Lovely fruit on the nose controlled fruit and sharp minerality on the palate. Some green apple skin. Super well made. Rocky finish. Very good.

As this opens just wonderfully rich like very good champagne can be. Really persistent. Zingy acids balance it out.

Special Club Brut 1er Cru Champagne Blend 2014

Delectable Wine
9.3

The 2014 Special Club Millesime is terrific. Vibrant and bursting with energy, the 2014 is so alive. Bright saline notes give this 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay Champagne tons of drive. Time in the glass brings out the wine's striking textural resonance and overall depth, with pretty exotic spice and floral overtones that add the final shades of dimension. Disgorged: December 18, 2018. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, December 2019) — 5 hours ago

Garennes Extra Brut Champagne Blend

A rare treat. Fuller bodied, a kiss of oak, ripe fruit and smidge of an oxidative-aged-white burgundy note. Not Cumières but I can live with it ;) — 7 days ago
