Flight 1 (2 Notes)

  • NV Perrier-Jouët Champagne Grand Brut 89 Points

    France, Champagne

    Biscuit and apples, fresh and attractive but also a bit unremarkable today.

  • 2002 Tyrrell's Sémillon Vat 1 93 Points

    Australia, New South Wales, Hunter Valley

    Pale, lemony white gold; the nose is still quite closed, loaded with minerals and citrus (lemon, hint of orange) some vanilla custard, but as yet no toasty evolution; on the palate incredibly taut and youthful for and 11-year old, with a wonderful, steely, acidic grip and energy, ripe lemon and cream flavours; very good length. An incredibly backward Vat 1, needs 3-5 years and will last a very long time. Drink now - 2032.
