La Grande Année Brut Champagne Blend 2002

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

@David L It was David and Happy Birthday. You chaps drank some fine bottles. This 2002 vintage up there with 1996 and possibly surpassed by 2008 the experts are saying.

Grand Millésime Brut Champagne Blend 2006

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

Clos des Goisses Brut Champagne Blend 1990

Nutty with toasty notes, a peachy warmth and a backbone if steely minerality. Fresh with a fine mousse but lovely depth and lots of secondary notes. A beautiful long finish. A wonderful champagne. From mag. — 22 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!

Le Brut 1er Cru Champagne Blend

Consumed from a half-bottle. Crisp acidity and minerality. Finish comes off as pretty apple juice like.

Disgorged November 2018.
