Stunningly complex and layered with evolving auto lysis aromas adding nuance and depth to its distinctive fruit profile. Great acidity and grip here, so better wait another 5+ years before pulling another cork. Amazing length.

Built more like a great Burgundy than Champagne. Toasty ,nutty ,spicy ,with ripe apple and the excellent acidity of the vintage, finishes with minerals and tons of dry extract . A great bottle!

Monstrous texture and acid high enough to dissolve steel, great champagne in 500 years

One of my favorites of the night. Delicious carmel and understated acidity.

Humming along very nicely right now. Precise and pure but enough juiciness to give it substance.
