Christmas Day 2022 opening wine. Excellent. Love the profile of this bottling. Toasted while showing beautiful fruit. — a month ago

Cristal Brut Champagne Chardonnay Pinot Noir Blend 2008

Stellar. Toasted hazelnuts, lemon curd, methyl anthranilate. Super fine bubbles that take you to the still zesty ripe Meyer Lemon finish. I recall when we had a bottle of this upon release I preferred the freshness then. This has been stored in our eurocave since we bought it from the reps at a party @sigh in Sonoma (Highly recommended btw - Thanks Jayme!) Here’s to 20 more years Mia ❤️ — 6 months ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Blanco Malvasia Viura 2005

Served slightly chilled. Popped and poured; no formal notes. The wine pours a deep golden color with an almost oily looking viscosity. Attractive sherry-like characteristics with fascinating notes of nuts, toasted coconut and marshmallow, lemon bar and black lemon (it’s a wild combination of the two). The texture is sort of oily/waxy…hard to describe with accuracy and the finish is long and saline with bright acidity that gives this a surprising freshness. Honestly, I feel my words cannot possibly describe these wines with the tasting notes they deserve. Drink now or through the return of Halley’s Comet. — a month ago

Comtes de Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2008

Absolutely stunning. Hallucinatory fruit. Poached pear, baked green apple, stewed quince, nutty flavors, toasted poppy seeds, grains, and just a beautiful savory finish that is so persistent. Very long, and then a high tone perfume sneaks in. Peony and exotic flowers peek through on the finish. — 5 months ago

it is indeed beautiful and so hard to keep one’s hands off. Shame that it shot up to $300+ . . . great stuff.

Its one of the best and finest champagnes we tasted in the last decade or so.
