Wow. The seaside. Walnut. Salty, yeasty, citrusy, expansive, herbal smell. Lively bubbles, great streak of acid. Lacks fruit, all mineral. But really good.

In the name of science, a few champagnes/sparkling wines were sampled today in an effort to help a friend for comparative research reasons. Hard way to spend a Monday...

For me, this was opposite end of the spectrum vs the Krug. More “reductive” in style with the bruised fruits & matchstick initially but this became a bit more fleshy after some time open and revealed more underripe citrus, lemon-lime candy and crushed rock. Thanks

Whoever thought that chalk, clay, and limestone were good soils for Chardonnay in Champagne...is a fucking genius. Clean, lean, loaded with minerals, precise. Amazing juice.
