Very nice nose of stony fruit, light pastry aromas and such nice minerality. A very smooth yet vivid acidity with finesse, class and elegance, very small yet creamy bubbles, long delicious finish with that slight pastry and stony fruit taste, irresistible mixture of energy and class. 94-95
Nez aromatique et fin, brioché, fruits blancs, minéral. Acidité et tension appuyée tout en étant d’une finesse et délicatesse incroyable, bulles hyper fines tout en étant delicatement crémeuses, une finale très longue avec une touche briochée et cette minéralité irrésistible, belle énergie, quelle classe et quel délice.

Dough, green plantain, apple, a little leafy on the nose. Intensely aromatic, lots of very fine bubbles. Bright, racy palate of citrus, apple, minerals, with some bitterness on the finish. Very good but a little austere, and the NV blend may be the better value? — 17 days ago
Drinking this one young. Disgorgement date: April 19, 2019. Nutty on the nose, chewy on the palate. Soft stone fruit notes. Long finish. Getting creamy as it opens up. Will get some more for the cellar! — 19 days ago
A beautiful, cool early Autumn evening, relaxing by a fire in the chiminea.
100% Pinot Noir, Disgorged February 2019.
Words escape me... Just wow!
(Notes later, I promise)
24 Hour Update:
Nose has yeasted dough, flat seltzer, limestone infused apple juice, hard crusted bread, oxidized red apple peel and bruised yellow apple.
Palate has tart yellow apple, saline puff pastry, faint lemon juice, limestone infused water, lemon zest with balanced acidity and a long, long finish. Outstanding.
The P-F wines always need a minimum of 24H open, 48H really if you have patience because then they open to just the most beautiful Champagne you've ever paid under $100 for, every time. No fear, the bubbles will wait over 48H so plan ahead for maximum enjoyment. — 18 days ago
