Yeasty and citrusy. Zest and wet stones. Young, vibrant BdB. Very Le Mesnil. Love it. Will do even better with some bottle age.

Crisp, refreshing, quite gentle, warm brioche and a bit of citrus on the finish. Very enjoyable.

95+ for the first time, this champagne is entering its early drinking window. Great future ahead!

Stunning. One of the best champagnes I have had. Has this wonderful richness and toastyness. Brioche. Almost like a wonderful tiny slight brandy note. Glorious.

Wow, fantastic. Lovely leesy notes, vanilla, lemon chiffon, lemon oil, stony minerality. On the palate: excellent acidity, mousse is very fine, but a bit too dense...better with some swirling in the glass. Wet stone, lemon peel, vanilla and very nice tang. Nice long tangy finish.
