Les Maillons Extra Brut Blanc de Noirs Champagne Pinot Noir

I opened this with high hopes as the winemaker is a former Selosse employee. I had the fortune of having some Egly-Ouriet the night before and as another Selosse employee, I thought the EO was far superior. This was very good, but it’s not fair to include it in the category of Selosse-esque. Nothing about this was oxidative. Explosion of red berries and red fruit...so bright that they were almost gummy on the nose. Lean and powerful with chalky limestone, minerals, cherry liqueur and tart citrus notes toward the finish. This is a champagne that benefits from a decant. — 12 hours ago

Love Egly champs!

Will retry as a comparison. Love the notes. Perhaps the bottle I had in the past had an older disgorgement date? Not sure, but glad you tried them side by side.

@Kimberly Anderson : I’m a big fan as of late!

@Michael Herzog : I remember you saying this producer was less oxidative but had more barrel char, and I’m in agreement with that. This bottle was pretty fresh, so I’m sure an older disgorgement bottle would probably be more up my alley. Still very good though. I’m really drawn to that oxidative type profile, so if you know of other recommendations, let me know!

Loved the nose - uncanny resemblance to my mother in law’s cupcakes right out of the oven. Tasted very nice, but relative letdown. — 14 days ago

Cuvée Rosé Brut Crémant de Limoux Chardonnay Blend

Apples, vodka, and minerals on the nose, very subtle. Fruity yet dry. More towards the white fruits than red fruits on the palate. Very refreshing. Not your average rose, soft carbonation taboot. Should have bought another. — 7 months ago

You know how pineapples used to cost like £100,000 in the 1500s or whatever? Yeah, that. — 2 months ago

Special Club Brut Grand Cru Champagne Blend 2005

Followed the Ulysse Collin Extra. Rut, so the dosage seemed a bit high. I had the 2006 about a month ago and it was good, not great. This was good, but not great again. Enjoyable, but not entirely special. — 3 months ago
