Diamant Blue Brut Champagne Blend 1995

Interesting champagne experience, bought recently from a trusted, local purveyor, fingers crossed it was still alive. Success, and still had some bubbles to share.

Nose has yellow apple peel, shaved ginger, beeswax candle and honey drizzled on recently baked bread.

Palate has warm honey, ginger soda, sugar preserved lemon, medium length finish.

A solid bottle to begin the weekend.

Simply an amazing closer to the evening with very good friends. Thank you Christina for opening. This is really delicious now but, will continue to improve over the next 20 years.

The nose reveals; yellow florals & lilies, sea spray, sea fossils, some of the most amazing chalkiness you can experience, lemon, lime zest, pineapple juice, green melons, grapefruit with pith, vanilla notes, orange blossoms, touch of of apple cider, woody notes, brioche with spring florals with greens.

The body is delicate, rich, yet restrained. Micro oxygenation, beautiful mousse, sea spray, sea fossils, some of the most amazing soft chalkiness you can experience, lemon, lime zest, pineapple juice, green melons, passion fruit, grapefruit with pith, vanilla notes, lanolin, orange blossoms, touch of of apple cider, woody notes, brioch, elegant beauty, richness, excellent acidity, balance, length and polish for days.

Photos of; Grand Cru Vineyard of Piper-Heidsieck, fermentation tanks, well aged library bottles we’d all like to open and the House of Piper-Heidsieck.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Couple hours in a decanter. Could probably use a few more. But still luscious red fruits and graphite for miles. Really love this wine. — 14 days ago

Rosé Réserve Brut Champagne Blend 2006

Good at 55 degrees, but even better at 40! Nose of strawberries, brie, walnut, sourdough bread. Enters with small bubbles, crisp, acidity in check. Crisp red apple, strawberries, hint of young raspberry. Finishes with more rounded edges and creamier notes -- strawberry sorbet! I would have never guessed that this was an 06 Vintage Rose. I think this one has a whole LOT of life left in it and will keep all the other bottles in the back! Went insanely well with a pastrami sandwich with coleslaw and bacon! — 2 days ago

Pale salmon color in the glass getting darker towards the core. Yeasty with toasted rhubarb, baked red fruit pie, rose petal, and a little bit of classical chalky limestone. Less strawberry cream/kiwi than most rosés but more aged and evolved fruit. In fact, this has a more “refined” type profile than most and I dig it. Totally delicious now, but will age nicely!

Rare Millésimé Brut Champagne Blend 2002

Wow. Have never been a fan of Piper till this. Amazing. Nose of underripe red cherry, red berries, lemon, apricot, papaya, banana, some peach and brioche. Super layered complex. Attack is swift with acid and followed with a layers of bread dough, a bit of oxidation, sour pear. Finish is long but mellow. Can see a bit of the House style with the finish. Excellent bottle. — a month ago
