Réserve Brut Champagne Blend

9.0

On a crystal clear sub-zero, star bright night, the snow pack on the mountains gleaming and the fire roaring we attended the first of several parties for friends moving to the interior of BC . We opened the night sharing another of our old loyal friends that never lets us down Taittinger Reserve Brut Champagne. Still lovingly family owned in an age of conglomerates “Old Taitts” blends 40% Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunière into a superb blend that giggles on the light and cheery side. A lovely aperitif to start a night with old friends. 12% alc/vol Cheers 🥂 — 3 days ago

Brut Champagne Blend 2002

Yes, It's him. In its best expression.
Lovely earthy character with classic notes of bakery and patisserie with hints of white and yellow flowers. Perfectly balanced and rich in the palate with a loong lastng finish for a beautiful smile in your face. 2002 vintage. Disgorged in 2009

Ruinart

Dom Ruinart Brut Champagne Blend 1996

This is lovely. Mature without being old. Great balance, rounded fresh fruit but resolved and hints of secondary notes. Very polished and supple. A really complete and delicious wine. — 5 days ago

Kirkland Signature

Brut Champagne

Reminiscent of Chardonnay based sparklers from prestigious vineyards based in areas such as Ambonnay or Mensil Sur Ogre. Strong bright acidity with green apple and citrus notes on the nose followed by a pleasing body with biscuit and toast hints on the palate combined with a minerality reminiscent of crushed oyster shell and pebbled rock. Would easily compete with vintage offerings from top producers like Andre or Cooks. — 4 days ago

Degorgment 11.5.2011
Usual unusual complexity full of character made by Anselme. Probably not in the best shape this bottle but I've enjoyed it a loooot.
Thanks John! ❤️️

Altum Villare Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne Blend 2006

Normally not a big fan of DP I must admit to having very good experiences lately with 04/05 and especially this 2006.
This was just singing after 60+ min in the glass...

Gorgeous yeasty lemony nose. Very clean. Juicy and lively with lovely lemon drop and Meyer Lemon sweetness. Really complex. Nice lean structure and minerality and terrific energy. Great showing. — 9 days ago

Is that a clear bottle? Color of the wine is super lemon yellow.

Clear bottle. It is a bit lemony color as well as taste

Krug

Krug Collection Brut Champagne 2002

What a Champagne... the white truffle and chocolate so distinctive but so perfectly integrated in such a vintage result to accomplish the outstanding balance that any Champagne producer would love to reach. The beauty of its nose is sticked in my dreamful mind after 3 days... A benchmark top level Champagne. Remarkable. — 2 days ago

Clos des Goisses Champagne Blend 2004

Both fresh and nutty oxidative at the same time. Zesty with real structure. Classic 04 leanness and bright minerality but classic goisses oxidative notes. Young but fun — 5 days ago
