Part of the Wine Nerd Herd shenanigans which was hosted by no one other than @Eric LaMasters in Iwoa. This all Magnum pairing started with the 98 Krug. Drinking extremely well for its age and has me believing this has many years ahead of it. Fresh French bread, green apple, notes of toasted hazelnuts on the nose. Appeared to be a bit backward on first sip yet with air showed light bubbles and candied lemon and baked apple. Long persistent finish that paired well with oysters and shrimp cocktail.

This gem from @Shawn R kicked off mag night at our bi-annual gathering, this time a home game for @Eric LaMasters in Des Moines, IA. I’d say it was among my top 5 wines of the week. Less yeast/hazelnut overtones than I’m used to (and enjoy) from Krug. This bottle was a cleaner less weighty generous expression of Champagne. Lots of depth, focus, precision and energy. Man oh man this was astoundingly good.

Lovely soft lemon with biscuity fresh breads nose. Lovely fine acidity, with hints of orange, oyster shells and a calm balancing minerality. Expansive and more and more delicious as time goes by in the glass. A sweetness in the edges. Wonderful.

Wonderfully mature fruit. Nutty edges with lemon confit and hints of dried fruit and eldeflower. Long with soft acidity but still bright. Great

Wow...this is definitely one of the best champagnes I have had lately. So complete, focused and complex...hopefully I can find more.
