Gorgeous. Great Oak and vanilla that’s well integrated and creates a creamy texture and finish.

Some more stone fruit than lemon. Delicious.

Concordance Extra Brut Champagne 2016

Outstanding. Deep golden color with few bubbles. This just screams excellence right off the bat. The nose is quite floral and very expressive. There’s some roasted nuts and buttered brioche notes to go with the grapefruit and cherries. Mint and smoke, vanilla and wet stones. Just plain gorgeous.

Vinous and deep and it just keeps going and going. 100% Pinot Noir from the Aube with no dosage and that shows immediately. Sharp and spunky with more than zippy acidity. I’m in love a little bit. Impeccable balance and structure here. Nothing cookie cutter, this is pure excitement in your glass. Very artisanal and elegant with so much power.

The attack is full of so much tension and personality. Very dry but effortlessly light and lithe. So youthful but that’s just fine. The minerality and texture of this champagne is just superb. Maybe this isn’t for everyone but it’s tailor made for me.
