On a crystal clear sub-zero, star bright night, the snow pack on the mountains gleaming and the fire roaring we attended the first of several parties for friends moving to the interior of BC . We opened the night sharing another of our old loyal friends that never lets us down Taittinger Reserve Brut Champagne. Still lovingly family owned in an age of conglomerates “Old Taitts” blends 40% Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunière into a superb blend that giggles on the light and cheery side. A lovely aperitif to start a night with old friends. 12% alc/vol Cheers 🥂 — 2 days ago
Yes, It's him. In its best expression.
Lovely earthy character with classic notes of bakery and patisserie with hints of white and yellow flowers. Perfectly balanced and rich in the palate with a loong lastng finish for a beautiful smile in your face. 2002 vintage. Disgorged in 2009 — 2 days ago
Reminiscent of Chardonnay based sparklers from prestigious vineyards based in areas such as Ambonnay or Mensil Sur Ogre. Strong bright acidity with green apple and citrus notes on the nose followed by a pleasing body with biscuit and toast hints on the palate combined with a minerality reminiscent of crushed oyster shell and pebbled rock. Would easily compete with vintage offerings from top producers like Andre or Cooks. — 2 days ago
What a Champagne... the white truffle and chocolate so distinctive but so perfectly integrated in such a vintage result to accomplish the outstanding balance that any Champagne producer would love to reach. The beauty of its nose is sticked in my dreamful mind after 3 days... A benchmark top level Champagne. Remarkable. — 16 hours ago
Only some of the very best N/V Rosé Champagne for an early holiday celebration with my Sister and Brother-in-law since we will miss celebrating Christmas Eve & Day together...ending our over 25 year streak. 😢 Love you both and will miss you as well as our Christmas traditions on Christmas! 🎄 🎅 ❄️ ⛄️ 🍾 🥂🎁 — a day ago
