Longitude 1er Cru Champagne Blend

Always delicious. Did not see disgorgement, but packed a little richness than usual while maintaining finesse. Golden fruits, minerals, blossoms, focused. — 6 days ago

Château Charmail

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

Clean, medium + intense aroma with a good concentration and nuanced complexity. Dark Bernier, cassis, blackberries, sweet plums, bell pepper and floral undertones; Lavender. A balanced portion of oak character with Sweet spices, tobacco, vanilla and a vague gravelly background.
Dry palate with a medium + acidity, medium + tannins with a balanced fruity texture. Despite opening with a good grip it lets you in rather soon, embracing and balancing the dark fruits and sweet oak on the palate. Dark fruit, vanilla and chocolate characters on the palate. A bit limping through the mid palate but regains its posture and walks proud over a medium + length and balanced finish.

Vieille Vigne du Levant Extra Brut Grand Cru Champagne Blend 2010

🏅 Rating 94/100 (4,4⭐)

Golden color. The style is gently oxidative. The bouquet of bird cherry white flowers and the warmth of a freshly baked loaf. With time in the glass reveals the iodine character of Côte des Blancs and light creamy notes of Cramant. The palate is broad with Granny Smith apples, white peach and citrus. Lightly oaked.

Previously this cuvee was called Vieille Vigne de Cramant, but had to change the name to avoid the confusion with Cremant. Name comes from the name of the place: Bourron du Levant. East facing parcel in Cramant with vines between 56 and 80 years old.

Larmandier-Bernier is among the pioneers of biodynamic viticulture in Champagne. Always healthy ripe grapes are fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in oak barrels. Spontaneous malo, no filtration and fining. Cuvee spends impressive 7-8 years sur lattes to gain its beloved complexity and depth. This bottle was disgorged by hand in June 2018 and dosed with 2g/l to Extra brut.

Rosé de Saignée 1er Cru Champagne Pinot Noir

Lovely light pink tint and beaucoup lively little bubbles. Touch of light metallic on nose that blows off quickly. Bright strawberry, cherry, tart cranberry notes. Elegant round mouthfeel, medium weight, and long, lingering finish. Spring salmon and rose bubbles is hard to beat! — a month ago
