@Shay A I’m inclined to agree (between the big houses at least)! 🥂

Exquisite. What a surprise. Strawberry fever. Reminds me of a light Lambrusco. Perfect way to start the night on a summer night. — 17 days ago

Royale Réserve Brut Champagne Blend

Rather balanced champers. On the front, creme brulee and brioche. Oxidative. Nuttiness going on. The finish is more reductive with some green apple, lemon and lime with a hint of tart and flint. Compared to Charles Heidsieck NV this one is probably 10 bucks more. This is a 12 base with earlier disgorgement than you see on the latest CH Heidsieck. This will hold IMO 10 years with cellaring on this NV with 2012 base. — 2 months ago

I very much enjoyed this. First time having it. Knew there were some similarities to CHeidsieck NV Brut Reserve and I can agree with that. Very similar aromatics of toasted brioche, yeast, hint of caramel. Palate was a bit more bright...very pretty Granny apple crisps, chalky limestone, some nuttiness. Whereas the CHeidsieck goes slightly toffee like at the finish, this stayed similar to the palate. Very good.

Monthly WTF wine group night. Our theme was American oak vs French oak. All wines tasted blind. We started off with two bottles of bubbly and finished with two non-themed reds.

First note that hit me was Lemon and vanilla wafer. Beautiful added notes of lemon cream, honeysuckle and chalk aromatics with grilled lemon and pasty on the palate. Slightly oxidative but not as much as I expected. Faint bubbles. Young! Thanks

Wow. Once this one cooled off, it was rocking. Nilla and lemon wafer. Hint of breadiness. But this is a nice balance between oxidative and reductive styles. And powerful. This wine has a minerality and crushed limestone on the finish that makes me think this one is going to be around for a long while. Very complex, and only going to develop with time. I seriously doubt I will give my other one the time it deserves to fully integrate, and that's a pity.

Surprisingly good. Vibrant and broad with good texture. Palate cleansing.
