Small brioche flavours a little wide but not flabby.

Lot number 3006536
spotted in duty free in KL.
Post mis en cave, pre new bottle shape.
In brilliant nick. Lemon curd and beeswax on lightly toasted brioche. Very vinous and round so I'm guessing it's based on '03.

BO'S tasting - 60% 07 vintage with 10 further back vintages in blend - no oak treatment - an opulent wine - probably the best NV on the market in Oz - "a clean Krug!"

Elegant and restrained for being opulent and round. Drank even better when it warmed up a touch and the detail really showed through. Fantastic food pairer from poached halibut to crab cakes to chutney prawns, this fit right in.

Every once in awhile you find something like this. NV but shows some age. If you are like me and enjoy champagne with age on it go to trader joes and pick this one up for a fraction of the regular price. I am going back for more!
