At The Come Taste The Stars Dinner hosted by Tyson Stelzer. Another 60/40 blend of Pinot Noir/Chardonnay. Quite BdB - very lemony and Chardonnay in style. So fresh and young - you would never pick this as 17 years of age. Aged 13 years on Lees. Evolving at glacial pace with developing layers of complexity. Will mature to 2030. A wonderful Champagne from the excellent 2002 vintage. At Montrachet Restaurant in Brisbane.

Such a baby but perfect way to celebrate and get ready for tonight! Leave the next bottle for five years or so.

Showing lots of secondary character rich and powerful . Just lacks a little bit of refinement . Very good though .

Showing much less maturity than the Cuvée Elizabeth. A very apple cider and pear nose joined by hints of biscuit. An abundance of structure with the acidity acting like the big man on campus. Salivating inducing honey coated minerals that somehow does not stifle the concentrated fruit which pops up on a very extended finish.

From Magnum. Amazingly precise and very pure. A gorgeous, yet young 2002 champers that is only going to get better over the next couple of decades.
