Confrérie Des Chevaliers du Tastevin Sous-Commanderie d'Albany, Chapter Candidate Dinner; 22 June 2019 at Yono's, Albany, NY

(Donated bottles from one of our members, we strayed from our fully Burgundy tradition for starting the night, but in the best way possible.)

More oxygenated than I prefer on my champagne but, nonetheless well made in that style. Bruised apple & pear, some white citrus, soft chalkiness, lots of yeast & bread dough, yellow florals, good acidity and a well polished rich finish.

Thank you Christina for bringing.

Deeper, richer, rounder than the Grand Annee...a more serious food oriented champagne. Capable of putting on even more gravitas with patient aging, but not as much fun as the youngster. Nice rich red fruit with nice weight and round ripe plush finish.

Very complex and dry! I remember that 2004 wasn’t a great year for growers. Probably not lol but a round of applause to Bollinger ;)
