Champagne Champagne Blend

Billecart-Salmon

Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

Translucent salmon in color that closely matches the label. Subtle but not light. Light strawberry followed by ripe apricot then dried peaches and a beautiful, slightly creamy mousse. Active tiny bubbles. This is a treat! — a day ago

Moët & Chandon

Grand Vintage Brut Champagne Blend 2008

The largest Champagne house in France, founded in 1743 by Claude Moët. A blend of 40% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir & 23% Pinot Meunier. Golden straw with stone fruit aromas with citrus notes. On the palate fresh fruit tastes of apple and peach with lemony tones. Great balance, good bubble bead flow, generous acidity, lingering ending with crisp mineral tones. A Fav! — 4 days ago

Henriot

Brut Millésimé Champagne Blend 1996

Mature, but not old. Tertiary notes. Lotsa bread dough. Good acidity. The acid is out there, but without tension or restraint. Some lushness. A Susan Sarandon of Champagne. Drink up time and hold your 1996 Henriot Enchanteleur. — 7 days ago

Billecart-Salmon

Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart Brut Champagne Blend 2002

Showing much less maturity than the Cuvée Elizabeth. A very apple cider and pear nose joined by hints of biscuit. An abundance of structure with the acidity acting like the big man on campus. Salivating inducing honey coated minerals that somehow does not stifle the concentrated fruit which pops up on a very extended finish. — 12 days ago

Perrier-Jouët

Fleur de Champagne Brut Champagne Blend 1990

Champs from my birth year. LOL apricot nose. Ever evolving in the glass. Almond and honey. A bit oxidized. As with all things French, I’m a major fan. Served with chips, caviar and creme fresh. Cheers to a shitty Monday — a day ago

Comte de Chenizot Brut Champagne Blend

This was a wild ride. Unusual aromatics of flintstone or scooby doo kids vitamins. Tastes like that too. The second day was better with those flavors fading, but still not my style (better with food) 33.3% equal parts of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier. Based on 2008 & 2009 vintages. Disgorged 2017. Dosage 4.5 g/L. SS — 9 days ago
