02’ Dom Runinart Champagne. Very fine aromas of lemon & grapefruit. Secondary notes of apricot & oyster shells. A thread of chalkiness & floral notes, that sits on the back of your palate for 30+ seconds. Many great years in front of this. Little champagne, prior to a sensational dinner tonight with my BETTER half. — 5 days ago
Servi un peu froid, Le vin est quand même bien fait. Bulles assez fines, un peu crémeux. Brioches et pain en bouche. Longueur correcte — 17 days ago
Contrasted nicely with some salty caviar carbonara. — a month ago
This Bodega is owned by LVMH. The same ownership as Cheval Blanc, part of Krug, D’Yquem, Dom Perignon, Ruinart, Cheval Des Andes, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Givenchy etc...
On the nose; meyer lemon, lime, green apple, pineapple, honeysuckle, soft, delicate minerality, brilliant white & yellow lilies with spring flowers.
On the palate, the body is thick & waxy. The fruits are different on the nose. The are macerated and sour; meyer lemon, lime, green apple, pineapple, honeysuckle, soft, big volcanic minerality, fair amount of saline, brilliant white & yellow lilies with spring flowers. There is something on the palate that reminds me of lemon pledge but not furniture polish.
Photos of; their spotless cellar and tanks. Roman influences into their Bodega. Landscaping around the property. Bodega reciving area.

9:10 PST Friday and finally sitting down for my baby bottle 🍼 375ml Rosé Champagne. Another long day. Big 5 course dinner paired with wine at the house tomorrow. Just a short list of things left to do tomorrow. Whew!!! However, enjoying the hell out of this glass now. Cheers. Oh, P.S. my wife just flipped again to Ruinart over BSR. In two weeks, it will be BSR again! 🤷♂️ — 23 days ago
Amber and pinkish with a slightly stinky nose with dusty notes. No mousse at all. Odd but rather beautiful and poised on the palate. Fresh, rounded, with roses, marmalade hints, orange and a settled length. Interesting — 2 months ago
