No new words to describe how much we lo♥️ve this bottle tonight. All I can say is we're starting to get low on our stash, thankfully a restocking is in my future already...

One of our favorite visits when we were in Reims in the Spring of 2018 was a short drive out to Damery to meet and taste with Virginie at Caillez-Lemaire. Their wines are such elegance, I simply can't get enough, glad we're buying case quantities now!

Prior notes apply; Nose is toasty brioche and a minerally quince jam. Ultra clean, creamy palate reflecting the same notes.

I love this wine! Thank you

Friday night, finally! It's been a long week, so I'll relax with one of our favorite Champagne's. We visited Caillez-Lemaire in May of 2018, greatly enjoying their hospitality and tasting through the lineup. The Eclats Brut is our favorite, great value for delivered enjoyment at ~$35.

Pictures of our bottle of the evening and stacks of champagne resting in the C-L cellar with their temporary closures, all waiting for someone's future enjoyment.

Delectable Post No. 1400...Time really flies when you're not paying attention.

Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion into the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again.

Prior notes still apply.

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our full cast of conductors include Andris Nelsons, Christoph Eschenbach, Keith Lockhart, Michael Tilson Thomas and John Williams. The beautiful and vocally talented Audra McDonald is our host for the evening along with Midori on violin and Yo-Yo Ma on cello.

This will likely be an evening to remember for some time. Program notes from the BSO "Reflecting the season-long theme, The Bernstein Centennial Celebration at Tanglewood will spotlight Bernstein's wide-ranging talents as a composer, his many gifts as a great interpreter and champion of other composers, and his role as an inspirer of a new generation of musicians and music lovers across the country and around the globe. The gala concert will feature a kaleidoscopic array of artists and ensembles from the worlds of classical music, film, and Broadway. The entire first half of the program is dedicated to selections from such brilliant Bernstein works as Candide, West Side Story, Mass, and Serenade. Music from the classical canon very dear to Bernstein's heart-selections from Mahler's Des Knaben Wunderhorn and music by Copland-plus a new work by John Williams, makes up a good portion of the program's second half; the finale of Mahler's Resurrection Symphony brings the program to a dramatic close."

We're revisiting some producer bottles from our late Spring France vacation earlier this year.

Awesome bottle, so mineral driven, toasted brioche spread with quince jam.

Photos of C-L champagne bottles resting with their temporary closures, resting 750's of their Cuvée Jadis rose and our bottle of the evening.

The best thing I think I may have ever tasted in a NV Champagne, finish is almost 2+ minutes... Mineral, mineral, toast, Chardonnay, mineral, amazing. Loved it so much I needed to buy a 1.5L for drinking during our trip as someone won't import the large bottles.

Photos of our wonderful host and their classic automatic riddling machine, still is use today.
