Much bigger and more oxidative than the Comtes, almost hard to believe they are both BdB from the same vintage. Round with medium acidity and extremely toasty.

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.

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

At Brasserie Bistro with Larry and Martie. The evening is off to a great start. Bracing acidity and limestone - still a baby at 12 years old.

2007 Ruinart Blanc de Blancs. Drank while decorating tree. Lovely, crisp wine. Apples on the nose.

Crisp but slightly creamy, rich, complex champagne. Beautiful with a slight cheese aroma.
