Vintage 2009 consumed in October 2018.

Nice golden straw color. Quick bubbles.

A core nose of very ripe pears along with some nice tertiary aromas coming through. A little butterscotch and honeyed pastry.

Red delicious apple flavor and steely minerality. Somehow I kind of missed the Extra Brut designation on this. I typically prefer brut level sweetness, and I do feel that the bracing acidity in this wine would be better served by a little more dosage. But that's just my palate's opinion.

As this wine breathed a little, it became a little so-so for me. Slightly oxidized notes started to show through. Any subtle floral undertones were overwhelmed by a raw bread dough aroma. These are nitpicky observations, but hey, I have to be nitpicky on vintage Champagne.

A solid and tasty 90pts, but was hoping for a little more from this wine.
