Eclats Brut Nature Champagne Blend

Whoa. For 35 this is off the hook. Stinging nose. Rich. Yeasty. Just awesome. Palate is even better. Rich but balanced with sick minerality and great depth. Lovely fleshy fruit tastes. But it all hangs together. Juicy as all get out. There are a bunch of 60ish grower champagnes whose tuchus this wine soundly kicks. Lyle is selling this Friday. Stock up on this I will. Bought from Fass selections. — 3 days ago

Prestige Rosé Brut Champagne Pinot Noir Chardonnay

9.1

Fuller style rosé champagne. Toasty roasted nuts upfront, full red fruit preserves follow. Round creamy mouthfeel, bubble structure is tight, acidity is bright. Solid, makes folding laundry a pleasure... — 2 days ago

Cuvée Jadis Brut Champagne Blend 2006

Lyle Fass
9.4

This is STUPID good right now. I think this is my 7th or 8th bottle of this wine and it gets better every time. What a nose. It is a kaleidoscope of intensity. Toasty, yeasty, feral, lemon curd, oh my what glorious stank. Also leather, smoke and spices. Just unbelievable aromas. Extraordinary palate with ridiculous depth. Concentrated and explosive yet graceful. What length and sap. Terrific acid keeps it on your palate for minutes. Graceful. This is true power and grace. — 3 days ago

Cuvée No. 733 Dégorgement Tardif Champagne

Pale Gold. A touch of Apple skins and burnt mouldy oranges. Has a Sherry like oxidative quality which is not a detractor. Very fine persistent bead. The back label is most informative - based on the 2005 vintage Disgorged in 2013 and released in 2014 with a very low dosage of only 2.5 grams per litre. An austere finish with a salty tang. A very good Valentines Day bubble. — 5 days ago

Tradition Brut Champagne Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier

Lively bubbles but more in the glass than on your tongue. A lightly buttery roundness with tastes of green apples, cantaloupe, and a slightly creamy finish. Fresh and refreshing. — 5 days ago

L'air Grand Cru Brut Champagne Blend 2005

1 of the 4 Champagne elements release series (fire, earth, air, and water). The L'air was such an awesome find (current and last release was "O", or water). It is lifted much like clouds ( beautiful sweet brioche toast notes, lemon zest, dried peaches, spiced honey, and and nutmeg. The pallet was creamy and full - full of baked golden apples, créme bruleé, toasted almond, and a bright lasting finish. I think this was an outstanding, and brilliant wine for under $90... yumm mmmm. Happy Valentine's Day! — 5 days ago

Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir

I believe this to be a perfect wine. Cliché to enjoy something so celebrated, I believe it's the reason it is celebrated. 96 was a great vintage specially for Pinot Noir this wine is so balanced and pure around texture but the long and the linear and it's Percision and focus. Kudos to the winemaking team able to taste this youthful high acid fruit bottled flawlessly not masked by wood or oxidation but focused on purity and drinkability. This wine won the popular vote which isn't always the critical vote but in this case I cannot be critical of something so perfect. — 11 days ago

Dom Ruinart Brut Champagne Blend 2002

Dare I say it's finally ready to drink? The 2002 Dom Ruinart has found a happy balance between mineral tension, rich textures and pure orchard fruit. It's stunning on the nose with a mix of dusty minerals, herbs and floral tones and glides effortlessly across the palate. Its a pure joy to drink. — 8 days ago
