 Tasted by MJHDC on 2/21/2014: I believe the dosage on this bottling is either 8 or 10 g/l, and to me it had a hint of sweetness on the finish, although I've been drinking a fair amount of low/no-dosage. As a 2004, it has good acidity, and was intensely aromatic. (701 views)
 Tasted by Korolev_mv on 1/1/2014 & rated 94 points: Пока лучшее шампанское, что мне доводилось пробовать.
Ничего лишнего! (700 views)
 Tasted by hfindlay on 12/31/2012 & rated 95 points: Almost freakish, it's so powerful. My brother in law said it's like cognac, which I get, not just because of the orangey flavors and the woody notes, but because of the sheer sinus-clearing intensity of this Champagne. Huge! It's like somebody found a dial on the bottle and turned it up to "max." Also: lemon, toast, loads of creamy, yeasty, vanilla notes - all wrapped up in a curtain of fresh bubbles. This may be the best Champagne I have ever tasted. (1291 views)
 Tasted by lepetitchateau on 4/24/2012 & rated 92 points: High-toned, medium weight crisp and classic Champagne (1570 views)
 Tasted by ChiefNose on 3/9/2012 & rated 93 points: I'm always a bit weary giving high ratings to Champagnes, but this little beauty deserves a few points. It must have been designed to be served as a starter; fine small bobbles, nice citrus flavour and a very pleasant sweetness - not overdosed with sugar. Should go with lobster and scallops too.

France - When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of consistent quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Champagne - The French region of Champagne (including the cities of Rheims, Épernay, and Aÿ) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and wine-making traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range in sweetness ranging from an extra brut or brut 0, to the basic brut to demi sec to doux; some houses produce single vintage champagnes and others produce non-vintage (or incorporate wines/grapes of multiple vintages), often to preserve a specific taste; combinations of grape varietals; and colors, including a rosé. There are several sub-appellations, including the Valley of the Marnes river running from Épernay west, Massif de Saint-Thierry north and west of Rheims, Valley of the Ardre, the Mountains of Rheims (between Rheims and Épernay), Côte des Blancs, Côte de Sézanne, and Côte des Bar in the South. Champagne wine only uses three grape varietals (cépages): Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier.
