Disg 09/2014. Btl 790/6200. Pop and pour, but notes from 2.5 hrs open. On the nose: melon, marzipan, soft toast, soft strawberry and basil. On the palate: fantastic density and acidity, grapefruit, vanilla, melon, soft honey...this has everything. This bottle was slightly closed at first, and definitely needed some air. One of my favorite champagnes.

09/2014 Disgorgement. Just an unbelievably good btl of champagne. Less rich, and seemingly less oak presence than the 02 Piper Rare, but fantastic aromatic complexity and textural elegance.
