Special Cuvée Brut Champagne Blend

In the name of science, a few champagnes/sparkling wines were sampled today in an effort to help a friend who is needing some samples/lab analysis done for comparative research. Hard way to spend a Monday...

Probably the most rich out of the lineup and always a favorite of mine. Definitely oxidative in style. Sweet toasted oak, marzipan, honeycomb & key lime pie. The mousse with Bolly is always one of my favorite traits...incredibly smooth with zero tart fruit. Thanks

R.D. Extra Brut Champagne Blend 1985

Dark golden with an ethereal nose of challah toast and fresh yeast. Rich, round and laced with honeysuckle, almost bereft of bubbles, this was just a beautiful wine. — 14 days ago

Total surprise and up there for my favorite of the day. I know nothing of this producer, so I’m not sure if my notes are due to it being vintage, but this was like a cross of the Vilmart & the Bollinger. It took the best traits of each and combined them...the ripe and sharp acidity green Apple and pear from the Vilmart with the toasted oak/sweet nougat & ginger from the Bollinger. Wonderful. Thanks

Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

🎄 Advent Halfy Calendar Day 22 🎄

🎅 Santa says “Two more sleeps boys & girls 😊 I hope you’ve all been good! I have so I’m going to pop these bubbles 😉”

📝 I say this has aged quick in the baby bottle and very oxidative reminiscent of a Bollinger with 10 years age - a good new find 👍

⏩ 🍾 Mrs E got Ruinart Blanc de Blancs NV

📍 R&L Legras Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut NV

🏵 91 points but would like to re-evaluate on a 75/150cl bottle vs 37.5cl

🍇 Chardonnay

🍷 Golden yellow straw

👃 Oxidative toasted brioche, smoke, fallen apples, honey & burnt citrus curd biscuit w/ a cream caramel & mineral undertone

👄 Med+ bodied rich ripe fine bubbled mousse of caramelised apple, honey, citrus biscuit, grapefruit & dry mineral

🎯 Med++ touch dry burnt caramel apple tarte tatin, citrus curd, grapefruit & mineral linger
