Some awesome things going on with this champagne:
Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs
It's a soft, simple, velvety champagne. Light on its feet with very creamy soapy bubbles, and well applied acidity to clear it away - baked apple, apricot, cinnamon, brioche, flint, white flowers, honeycomb - about 9g dosage, so not on the dry side of Brut, but not near Extra Dry.
Just beautiful juice for the price - it's not toasty and intense, it is a soft and pretty style, but a great example of Chard from Avize - Oger.

On 2.11.2019 at 10:02pm my son, Austin Cade, entered into this world. I think it only fitting to (finally) celebrate with some bubbles that were gifted to me and my wife by some dear friends for the occasion.
Copper, orange peel, citrus zest, and yeast. Nice mouthful with good body, but not overly heavy or generous. This can handle some stout food. — 3 days ago
Лимон, неспелый жёлтый грейпфрут, яблоко, белый хлеб, фисташки, базилик, легкая горечь в послевкусии. Сухо, с чуть нервной кислотностью. Тонко и дрожаще, с голой костью, интенсивно, без большой глубины, довольно просто, но не глупо. — 3 days ago
Celebrating my mother-in-law’s birthday. She prefers champagne over red wine (and she really enjoys red wine) so this was definitely a perfect bottle. Awesome, creamy mousse. Roasted almonds, brioche, and rich key lime pie. This is definitely on the young side, but extremely enjoyable now. Very little tart notes here. Yeasty and chalk driven. Bubbles go forever. I enjoy the more oxidized style champagnes, and while this is maybe more reductive in style, there is an awesome savory/sea salt note steak down the middle of the palate here. — 7 days ago
Jason’s birthday (with his wifey). Stunning presentation. Lovely nose of toasted hazelnuts and baked bread. Palate is energetic. Tilts towards spices with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Really nice acid profile with excellent balance and mid palate weight. Very impressive. — 15 hours ago

Happy Valentine’s Day! This is a copper beauty - need to open and warm up but then revealed brightness - citrus more than red fruit, slight brioche then limestone - the nose is big and round. The palette is expansive - just so full, some cherry and malo, then grapefruit, red fruit, with some flowers in the background, I can’t believe how balanced this is. Can almost smell the oak. The finish is long, starts with an acidic bite and mellows with the fruit slowly fading away. Wow. — 3 days ago
Monthly WTF group. Theme this month was merlot. All wines tasted blind.
I opened this as a starter for everyone and was very pleased. For around $25, this is a wonderful champagne. Roasted lemon & lime alongside brioche aromatics. Very creamy mousse. Chalky minerality on the palate. Honeyed guava, touch of honeycomb. Really good acidity. I was introduced to this by @David T ; thanks David! — 4 days ago
