To taste this wine I believe you need to understand the mentality and passion of the producer. Tasted in a flight of great champagne this wind appeared older than it was distinct salty, nutty, dried flower, ample richness and freshness from the youthful part of the cuvée; depth and mystery from the older part of the Solera/blend. This is a phenomenal champagne but it is for the select few that have studied the brand and wish to try and oxidize style - which is only a complement to the wine in this particular version a little less pervasive then and other cuvées from this brand. Sensational at Gwen With our diverse set of appetizers....and yes I love this one with charcuterie - a specialty At Gwen (salty aged ham? Hell yes). Fall in love with the oxidative nose invest in the wine for its unique and undeniable quality

Wowzah! Tastes like new wood but that's not his thing. Huge, ripe totally unclassic.

Stunning and rich. This had a bit of 03, so it's rounder than the other Blanc de Blanc. A fabulous wine.

Very very very good, unlike any other champagne I've had this far. Solera started in 2003. Reductive, he suggests decanting half the bottle (according to lady at tasting)
