Laurent-Perrier

Grand Siècle Cuvée Grande Brut Champagne Blend

The latest release of the Grand Siècle from Laurent Perrier is a truly spectacular Champagne. Disgorged in October 2017 the wine is a blend of the top wines made from 2002, 2004 and 2006. The bouquet is simply intoxicating with amazing range, from honeydew lemon to citrus rind, brioche and Japanese pear. On the palate, this shows an excellent combination of viscosity and tension. Apricot, Challah bread, marzipan and kumquat zest flavors all marvelously combine togehter. While this is a marvelous Champagne that is built to age, it is simply impossible to resist right now.

So good. This Muenier heavy blend is stunning. Bready, yeasty, brioche and mineral nose as well with faint raspberry fruitcake. Really aromatic. Palate is juicy and structured with terrific sap and purity. So clean and focused yet also wild, feral and fun. Wonderful. — 2 days ago

Eclats Brut Champagne Blend

Friday night, finally! It's been a long week, so I'll relax with one of our favorite Champagne's. We visited Caillez-Lemaire in May of 2018, greatly enjoying their hospitality and tasting through the lineup. The Eclats Brut is our favorite, great value for delivered enjoyment at ~$35.

Nose is toasty brioche and a minerally quince jam. Ultra clean, creamy palate reflecting the same notes.

Pictures of our bottle of the evening and stacks of champagne resting in the C-L cellar with their temporary closures, all waiting for someone's future enjoyment.

Delectable Post No. 1400...Time really flies when you're not paying attention.

It was 19 in TX Tues, hailed yesterday, and is 80 degrees today. Welcome to spring in TX.

I love the info on the back of these bottles as they give detail to the base vintage and when they were disgorged. This is ‘08 base, disgorged 2017.

Right up my alley. I’d call this oxidative, but not overly so. There is a Krug-ness about this style. It’s toasty and savory with a little caramel, toffee and baked apple. Creamy. For my personal taste, while I enjoy all champagne cold, this is one of the few styles that holds up well even once it warms up slightly as there isn’t a lot of tartness here.

@David T : I love it! I’m going to re-stock.

@Ryan Vento : Stay safe down there! We all know that spring in TX is a roll of the dice.

@Mark Flesher : Glad there wasn’t any damage! Think we escaped unscathed as well.

@Bob McDonald : I’m inclined to agree with you. Can’t think of anything else that I would take over this at the price.

Cristal Vinotheque Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend

The 2008 ‘Cristal’ Champagne is a magical effort from this storied vintage in Champagne. Roederer cellar master Jean-Baptiste Lecaillon has crafted a simply magnificent wine here. The nose is highly perfumed and very musty with earthy tones showing front and center. White truffle shavings and peat moss with egg yolk infused brioche and bright pear flavors fill this exotic nose. Streamlined throughout, there is a seamless quality to this wine. With racy acidity and a remarkable salinity the wine shines through on the palate delivering a delightful combination of serious weight and effervescence. Saline infused Japanese pear, marzipan, Marcona almond and kumquat flavors all delight the senses. Truly one of the best from this house that I’ve ever sampled, the 2008 ‘Cristal’ needs more time in the bottle to develop — that said, this wine is scintillating in its youth.
