Toasted brioche, vanilla and a soft creamy texture! Delightful mouthfeel! Our guests raved!

Yeah, this is alright. Pour me some more... lemon curd, soft toast, insanely fine tuned bubbles. Makes the knees weak.

My favorite of the first event of Effervescence LA ! In the meantime if I could even just smell this wine I’d consider it a treat. It is the most perfect delicate biscuit with just a dash of lemon curd. An elegant alcoholic tea party treat. I am ruined. I’ll dream of this until I taste it again. Thank you @Delectable Wine for sending me and stay tuned for a column with more bubbly details.

Honeyed nose with fresh citrus fruits and lemon vanilla custard and brioche on the palate

Lively but mature with mushroom ; brioche , toffee , ripe apple with incredible depth and length . Tasted more like the 1988 than 1973! Another great older Dom Ruinart BDB!

I have had this wine more than any other tete de cuvée and it's amazing that this bottle was so young still. It drank at least 10 years younger than it is . A great Champagne that will age another 10 to 20 years in good bottles.

This just gets better with every release, a little leaner than the '02, but that's indicative of the vintage, really loving the reductive high toned citrus quality to it, magical wine.
