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.

Okay... back to back vintages. The ‘18 is IMO a bit more lean, mean, and focused. Ripe pear and Granny Smith apples with a hint of toast. Plenty of intensity, perhaps not as round as the ‘17. Similar in style, I think ‘18 is the better vintage though both are impressive. Balanced..displaying touch of minerality, the wine at this stage in its development needs food. Long, lingering finish. — 6 days ago

리치, 파인애플, 열대과일 향. 맛도 향 그대로 파인애플이 느껴지고 산미가 두드러진다. 중간정도의 단맛. 입에 침이 고이는 맛. 더운 여름에 딱인 리슬링. 떡볶이&튀김 안주.
Lychee, pineapple, and tropical fruits scent. Flavour is exactly same as scent. Strong acidity. Medium sweet. My mouth is watering! Can’t wait hot summer for riesling. — 8 days ago
