Lovely but still a bit powerful. I’d love to revisit in 10 or 20 years. — 12 days ago

Golrious balance. Cork was compressed and showing age, though I stored this in my cold cellar. Nose of yellow fruits and flowers. All of a piece, though feeling a bit spendy.

Tonight we tested the Riedel Vintage Sommelier flutes with the friends that gifted us our first set vs the flutes we had been using.
I wanted to do it with this champagne as I know it well. Moving back and forth between flutes, the nose was more green apple with the Somm flutes which, show more pineapple at the start.
From the Somm flutes there was green apple, lime zest, lemon, nougat, almonds, yeasty, more refined grainy minerals, volcanics, saline, yellow flowers with jasmine. The acidity is near perfect. The finish is; rich, well polished, nicely knitted and persists for minutes.
