Very present and correct. Very clear fruit but underlying acidity. Lovely stuff.

This is really tightly coiled. Lemon (verbena?), steeliness, lime and chalk. Real purity and clarity on the palate but super tightly wound. This needs time but there’s quality there.

Got to taste the '02 Salon today that is just now being released. It is mind blowing. One of the greatest Champagnes I've ever tasted, with a very long life ahead of it.

Whoa mama. The structure is here - white pepper, ginger, chalk. First disgorgement of the 02.

This wine is incredible. It has such power whilst being delicate. The length was as long as any wine I have had.

What an incredible experience! Medium straw, light yellow color; beautiful ripe apple aroma, with a hint of yeastiness; quite precise and luxurious, incredibly elegant, frisky and super alive; medium bodied, rich, layered and stylish on the palate; dry, fine acidity, well balanced; excellent super-young flavors of ripe apple and light yeastiness; long finish, subtle layers in the aftertaste. One of the best wines, I have ever enjoyed. This is a wine for the ages. (Best Served: 2022-2040)

Wow! What a pick me up. I get Chinese pear/apple with white pepper drizzled pear skin. Mouth watering acids, so powerful, this wine can go another 40 years and still remain young. Thanks to my dearest friend Cindy who purchased and opened this for me. One can never feel as spoiled as me at this moment.
