Cannot get enough of these magical Champagnes from Olivier Collin. Glad to snag this last bottle. The 2015 60 months sur lattes just dials everything up to 10. It’s deep and intense and radiates with energy and Burgundian flair. It has leesy richness, while at the same time shows impeccable purity and elegance. Swirls in a Burgundy glass unleash its core of caramelized stone fruit, curry leaf, rose oil and exotic spices along ripping citrus inflicted acids that lead to a long, tension filled and smoky mineral infused finish. Truly, like if Meursault could sparkle ✨

Another knockout from Olivier. Deep and powerful, yet retains such transparancy and elegance. I loved this! For me, it was less about the fruit and more about the chalky, warm earth, saline characters here. Riesling-worthy acidity that just carries the minerality to infinity. Doesn't seem to flesh out throughout the week it remained open, so definitely could use a couple of years in the cellar. Wish I had more.

48 months on the lees. Along with Roises, my favorite cuvée from Ulysse Collin. It’s deep, intense and ultra precise with vivid energy and tensile acidity. There’s a leesy richness, while at the same time displaying such purity and elegance. Sufficient air brings out its core of caramelized stone fruit and florals that lead to a tension filled and chalky mineral inflicted finish. Really a terrific Champagne that has it all. Decanted.

Smells like pet-nat with rs and fennel. Complex but a little disjointed. Also bit too ripe?
