Millésime Extra Brut Champagne 2006

Intense fruit that is starting to round out nicely. We’ve had a lot of success with 2006s over the past year as they seem to be in a great drinking window. Some toasty brioche notes and good fruit that keep you salivating. First time with this producer, but certainly not the last. — 3 days ago

Chemin de Reims Extra Brut Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2012

100% chard and extra brut but on the sweet and toasty side. Not quite as bright and savory as some of the single vineyard offerings from C-T, but this has a bit of a lushness to it that reminds me of vintage Krug. The nose is all brioche, lemon curd and a bit of candied orange. If I only had one word, it would be “panettone”. Like this a lot. — 8 days ago

Cuvée Creation 1er Cru Brut Champagne 1999

Yeasty with stone, wonderfully fresh fruit with a touch of honeyed sweetness and some secondary notes coming through. All in beautiful balance- still fresh but probably at the best time to drink this. Really lovely — 18 days ago
