Bouzy Grand Cru Brut Champagne

Prior notes still apply, wonderful bottle!

Nose is lightly briney, fresh sage and peppercorn and cold yellow apple.
Palate has chalky red fruits, abundant red & yellow cherry, great acid and even better mineral texture.

I usually decant this bottle to alleviate some of the bubbles (they're crazy), but opted to not today. We're sitting by the chimenea this afternoon, so I'm just letting the bottle air out in the ice bucket.

Brut Rosé Champagne Pinot Noir

Memorial Day Weekend 2018 🇺🇸

Prior notes still apply.

The champagne is a beautiful salmon/light orange color. Acidity is bright, Pinot fruits are singing, chalky minerals, citrus and light trend towards red berries.

Sonoma-Cutrer

Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2016

Sonoma-Cutrer vineyards was founded in 1973 by Brice Cutrer Jones, but sold out to a big wine house, now, in my opinion, its hit or miss on the quality. So far the 2015 RRR was a bit of a disappointment, but the 2016 was much improved. Stone fruit aromas with floral scents. Apple, peach and pear flavors with vanilla oak spice, a hint of citrus. Medium finish, ending toasty with mineral character. — 2 years ago

Domaine Leflaive

Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 2016

What a great honor to taste the full lineup of Leflaive with Mr. Brice. No Montrachet Grand Cru for 2016 since 16 was a very difficult vintage. But still Leflaive didn’t fail to impress! — 2 months ago

Château Haut Saint Brice

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Steely with red berries on the nose. Soft tannins, animal notes, leather and dark red berry fruits on the palate. An amazing wine to drink now. — 4 months ago

Coteaux Champenois Grand Cru Bouzy Rouge 2012

So much freshness and cracked stone minerality. Underneath there is piercing cherry fruit and a whiff of sweet spice. Lots of intensity in the mouth. There is some fruit but this is bone dry and really shows high-toned savory stoniness. Long, mouthwatering finish. Very unique!

UPDATE: On night 2, still super fresh, but showing more fruit and a sweet mint leaf note. Great wine.

Bouzy Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Prior notes apply, but doing a little better than last time, 91.5 points tonight.

Nose of lemon juice, toasted brioche and cold limestone.
Palate has yeasty citrus, creamy minerality and fun salinity on the finish.
A nice BdB with no dosage.

I've found the Brice NV bottles all need a decant, yes decant Champagne, seriously. These bubbles are over the top, and only an extensive airing will bring you full enjoyment. The vintage bottles are good to go from the bottle, more restrained effervescence there. This was decanted for about 45m, but I did have the decanter in the refrigerator, I still have respect for service temperature.

@Aravind Asok @Severn Goodwin Absolutely re decanting Champagne. Have found it essential with Jacques Selosse. Also in White Burgundy glasses, not flutes. Cheers.

@Bob McDonald Agreed! I have plenty of flutes, bought early in my wine experience career, and never use them any more. Using with white Burgundy glasses only...It's the best way, if you like to smell your wine.
