Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.
Nose has baked yellow apple, yeasty baked bread, limestone gravel and citrus peel.
Palate has yellow cherry, lemon rind, moist sourdough bread and hint of sweetness on the long finish.
Beautiful bottle. — 18 days ago
Quite the birthday dinner. By far the best wine paring I have ever had with a dinner. Now it’s time to go run the Chicago Marathon! Lightning minerality, fresh lemon zest, smell of brioche dough about to go into a warm oven. Great way to start the meal of a lifetime. — 4 days ago
Nose has rising bread dough, bruised yellow apple, oxidized yellow apple and moist chalk.
Palate has dried ginger, risen bread dough, under-ripe yellow apple, oxidized apple peel, superb mineral core and very long finish with lightly sweet, buttered popcorn. Just wow, love the vintage offers from P-F!
We're enjoying our first fire in the chimenea on this cool late summer evening, just one of many to come the rest of the year.
24 Hour Update: Still the same, still bubbling, perhaps a little more depth to the oxidized apple note, but just beautiful. — a month ago
One of my favourite Champagnes. At the Come Taste the Stars Dinner hosted by Tyson Stelzer. 100% Pinot Noir. Barely a foot of top soil before the roots enter the chalk. Incredibly minerality. Egly prefers NV to vintage for the Blanc de Noirs. Disgorged 2018 with 6 years on Lees. A blend of 2010 and 2011 both average vintages incredibly. Full bodied and powerful. Stunning. Amazing value compared to the Krug Clos de Ambonnay at $4500 and 10 times the price of the Egly. — 5 days ago
This is good. In the beginning the nose had this vitamin B thing going on, but it wasn’t in the flavors in the mouth. The second day the smell was gone but the finish has this flintstone or scooby doo vitamin thing. Could just be a light struck bottle. TBL — 14 days ago
