This is wonderful stuff. Lots of secondary notes with hints of Orange peel and brioche over a lovely supple core of sweet lemon scented acidity. This if complex but still vivacious and very long. Great stuff.

Medium gold but looks youthful in the glass with steady fine bubbles. At first it’s youthful and one dimensional with notes of bread, citrus and apples. With an hour of air it gains complexity with ample acidity and develops a pleasing creaminess. Resembles a nicely aged Chablis. Palate coating long finish. In a great place.

This is holy grail of champagne- 1996 is such a marvelous vintage - was tart to start but it really developed in the glass

This was extra gear! My #2 champagne of opening night in San Antonio. Astounding focus, bright honey, lemon oil and brioche.

An intense nose. Lemon oil, oyster shells. A beautifully rounded midpalate with bready warmth, good definition some secondary notes and a long finish. Fantastic stuff. One of the best 96’s

Medium gold, maybe just a little lighter than the 95 next to it. Great nose with persistent tiny bubbles. Not as complex or developed as it’s older sibling. Notes of apricot, lemons, and stones. Has the material to be the better Wine of the two but it’s still young, needs more time. BDay dinner 2/12.

5-Oh Bday Dinner... Light gold. Vibrant effervescence. Toasty bread and lemon notes. Really coats the palate. Great showing.
