Heck of a hosting by @Weston Eidson last night for the City Club wine group. All wines were tasted blind.

This was fantastic, and my first experience with vintage Dom Ruinart. Yeasty but balanced out by mineral driven notes (slate, limestone). Medium bodied (more full when compared to the Marc Hebrart). Little bit of honey. Super smooth mousse. More reductive in style with a tiny bit of burnt matchstick I called this 2006 Blanc de Blanc champagne.

Jason’s birthday (with his wifey). Stunning presentation. Lovely nose of toasted hazelnuts and baked bread. Palate is energetic. Tilts towards spices with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Really nice acid profile with excellent balance and mid palate weight. Delicate minerallity comes along for the ride, and completes what is a polished example. Very impressive.

Mature with aromas of ripe apple , pear and orange . Rich and full with notes of fig , nectarine , ripe apple and brioche. Long full finish that coasts the palate with a slight sweetness .

Exceptional. Bright citrus. Lemon oil and sizzling acidity. Loads of depth and very long. One for the future but beautiful now.

Gorgeous, delicate nose. Precise crisp yellow fruits, clean limestoney minerality, and a spring meadowy thing. Mouthfilling but light at the same time. Great length. I hope 2019 is as good as this.
