Celebrating with my boys in Pittsburgh. Great moments...
Nose displays yeast, slightly musty and soft oak. Palate shows lemon citrus, pears with hints of honey. This is awkward as the wine is declining. Finishes bone-dry. Get after these now.

Bosc pear, overripe pineapple, butterscotch candy, brioche, soft bubbles, silky chalk and acid a little high. I know a lot people love this champagne but there are better for less $.

Honestly, if I had this blind I probably wouldn't pick this as clearly superior to other good champagnes. Is it good? Sure. Is it miles above its peers as indicated by its price? Probably not. I enjoyed it anyway, though.

dominating citrus offset by some red fruit flavors ~ pop of minerality w slight nuttiness ~ as always the texture is created by the extraordinary tight beads
