Popped this in anticipation of an Australian victory over England in the Rugby World Cup quarter final when we trailed 17-16 in the 2nd half. However we ended up getting trounced 40-16. This Champers was mid Lemon Gold with an ultra fine bead. Funky lemon mineral notes with apple pie pastry. Even at 17 years good tension with possibly another 10 years of cellaring. Although pretty irresistible right now. As Churchill said You deserve Champagne in victory and you need it in defeat! — 4 days ago
17/20 (92/100) Аромат с нотами молочной карамели, сдобной булки, яблочного пюре, спелого абрикоса и лимонного сока. Не очень тельное с высокой кислотностью. Приятное во всех отношениях игристое. — 11 days ago
It’s been a long day for both of us getting here but, we are finally here! 😃👍
Kicking it in the D&S Lounge means starting with Champagne. 🍾🥂 The best room of the entire house.
Notes soon and if I get lazy, my previous notes will stand.
Happy Friday and weekend! Cheers! — 12 days ago
Consumed from a half-bottle. Crisp acidity and minerality. Finish comes off as pretty apple juice like.
