A very enjoyable btl. On the nose: red apple, mint-inflected vanilla cream, soft lemon. On the palate: soft, slightly coarse mousse, fantastic acidity, sweet lemon, apple, soft cream, and then a refreshing tangy finish. Everything is well-proportioned. 53% Chard, 31% PN, 16% PM. Would love to try this again with more age. — 24 days ago
Rhonda likes on par with knob creek, but it is different (and different than most bourbon) — 2 months ago
This is a lovely wine with lots of spark. It has the usual PM funk and slight bubble in the tongue while still having some buttery smoothness. — 22 days ago
Pale straw with more than enough small bubbles. Medium intensity nose of tropical fruits and sweet honey. It’s a touch shy for quite a while but when it does blossom, it blossoms. White peaches and fresh lemons abound here.
35/35/30 CH/PN/PM with 3 g/l dosage so it has that refreshing bite. Six years on lees and disgorged in January of 2020 so there is some nice maturity here. Balance is the word. This is one of the most expertly balanced champagnes I’ve tasted. Everything in it’s proper place and finely tuned.
Plenty of complexity and finesse on the palate. Citrus flavors dominate all day long. Let this sit for an hour or two so it has time to evolve. It’s smooth, sleek, and more than a bit sexy. Really good today, much better a year from now. — 23 days ago
Caramel, vanilla, grain smell (obvious given it is a wheat whiskey but still there). Moderately smooth with still a hint of harshness. Got to give some props to a KS/MO distiller. Like it but still have a preference to a CO whiskey and of course, some Japanese whisky. — 2 months ago

I try not to be such a G.D. Vajra fanboy but every wine of theirs I have blows me away. This is the best yet. Beautiful bouquet of cherry with a spicy sweetness, maybe chocolate? Silky smooth berry on the palate that coats your entire mouth with just a touch of acidity that I can only describe as juicy. Finishes with a sweet creamy slightly spice note kind of like a mocha. I'm still new in my wine journey but so far this wine is as close to perfect as I've had. — a month ago
