Grande Cuveé 168ÈME Édition Brut Champagne Blend

The 168 with a base of 2012 back to 1996 was rich, chiseled & precise showing a steely, mineral character with notes of citrus, green apple & pastry dough. This will be a great one to follow along with the 164 to matchup in a few years. — 8 days ago

Sixto Moxee Washington State Chardonnay 2013

More interesting than delicious, with coriander, cinnamon, hay, and some lemon oil hiding quietly in finish. Rich oily mouthfeel. Not a lot of fruit left here but still intriguing. — 3 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.
Happy Mother's day to my wife, paired w almond croissants and truffled eggs.

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.

@David T Agreed re the tasting room. Best one with I’ve been in. The salon at Taittinger to taste the Comtes was pretty good as well.

Brioche, sehr schöner Schmelz. Feine perlage. Tolle Note geröstete Haselnuss — 15 days ago


Grande Cuveé 167ÈME Édition Brut Champagne Blend

Always love Krug, but the 167 is a touch tighter than usual. Still very nice butterscotch and white fruit. Gentle but certainly there bubbles. Great minerality and a bit of yeast. Long finish and delicious. Perfect with fried chicken. — 18 days ago

Nice long finish. Wish it had a little more oak taste to counterbalance — 23 days ago
