Les Maillons Extra Brut Blanc de Noirs Champagne Pinot Noir 2014

One of the rarest from this excellent grower, rich and intense, black cherry, blood orange, spices and a chalky minerality. Delicious. — 4 days ago

Blanc des Millénaires Champagne Chardonnay 1995

Wife Barb’s Birthday called for some excellent fizz and this delivered as it always does. Pale to mid Lemon in colour. Intense yeasty citrus aromas (Vegemite for those familiar with Australia’s black yeast extract breakfast spread). On the palate great vibrancy and energy - amazing at 24 years of age! Who knows how long this Blanc de Blancs will live - still with a long future. We first tasted this in the Charles Heidsieck cellars in Rheims 4 years ago. It was stunning then and remains stunning today. — a day ago

Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2008

Accepted a new job after 4 months of interviews (at 1 place), so we figured that was a 2008 Cristal moment. Believe the hype. This is terrific. Period. Best champagne I’ve had in ... ever...? — 2 days ago

Dom Pérignon

Brut Champagne Blend 2008

I am only a peasant in Dom Perignon’s kingdom 👑 elegant, suave, a beam of light and hint of romance - the gentleman of my dreams.
Seriously, just the right amount of citrus/fruit without being overpowering.
Many thanks to Antonio & Vinous

Pol Roger

Sir Winston Churchill Brut Champagne Chardonnay 2000

9.7

Once in a while you just have to go for it. While touring the wine cellar at the Post Hotel in Lake Louise AB we noticed this bottle of Champagne. Pol Roger Brut according to legend was the preferred Champagne of Winston Churchill and is still enjoyed by Queen Elizabeth to this day. This vintage Champagne with its unique smooth effervescent mouth feel, hints of fruit and long lasting legs would still make the Prime Mister himself smile. Cheers 🥂 — 2 days ago

I have few heroes in my life, and Churchill is certainly one of them. When we got married, we toasted with a 88 double magnum 🙂

Caillez-Lemaire

Eclats Brut Champagne Blend

Friday night, finally! It's been a long week, so I'll relax with one of our favorite Champagne's. We visited Caillez-Lemaire in May of 2018, greatly enjoying their hospitality and tasting through the lineup. The Eclats Brut is our favorite, great value for delivered enjoyment at ~$35.

Nose is toasty brioche and a minerally quince jam. Ultra clean, creamy palate reflecting the same notes.

Pictures of our bottle of the evening and stacks of champagne resting in the C-L cellar with their temporary closures, all waiting for someone's future enjoyment.

Delectable Post No. 1400...Time really flies when you're not paying attention.

Deutz

Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

Definitely caught my eye. This is a nice sparkler with which to begin the night. Strawberry, kiwi, dried tropical nores. Has a great weight on the finish. This was the only sparkling opened tonight, and that's not so much of a bad thing! — 3 days ago

21ÈME Édition Brut Champagne Rosé Blend

Orange-pink. Fresh red fruit, raspberries and bramble, cherry pie, it feels like a walking through a berry patch with some honey and pepper. Then the bread comes through, really a nuanced aeromatic nose. Requires at least an hour open though. The structure of this wine is what denotes its price point. In a word, perfect. The attack is soft and light, with subtle berry noted. The mid builds to this huge full lemon juice (feels like grand cuvee) with berries squeezed in. The acid is not huge but completely in balance. The finish lasts seemingly for minutes. It’s sugared cranberry. Wow. — 3 days ago

Laurent-Perrier

Grand Siècle Cuvée Grande Brut Champagne Blend

The latest release of the Grand Siècle from Laurent Perrier is a truly spectacular Champagne. Disgorged in October 2017 the wine is a blend of the top wines made from 2002, 2004 and 2006. The bouquet is simply intoxicating with amazing range, from honeydew lemon to citrus rind, brioche and Japanese pear. On the palate, this shows an excellent combination of viscosity and tension. Apricot, Challah bread, marzipan and kumquat zest flavors all marvelously combine togehter. While this is a marvelous Champagne that is built to age, it is simply impossible to resist right now.
