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

A complete 180 after the no dosage Lassaigne. Much higher dosage, but no Malo, higher acidity - a different balance. Lemon curd and brioche.
