Some blind 2013 Northern California Pinots to ring in the new year (Rich's, Chicago, IL): Nose: And this is a brawny and deep wine on the nose filled with brioche, baked apples, honey notes, a touch of wax, potpourri, peaches, and some nutty tones. The nose is quite layered with more mature notes at this time.

Taste: Full bodied with medium+ acidity. The palate is rich, yet balanced with the acidity holding things together. The depth and layering continues on the palate with brioche, baked apples, wax notes, nutty tones, peaches, and some baked bread.

Overall: This was from a 2006 disgorgement. There is a refined power to this that has come with age. It is a larger scaled Champagne, but it is extremely well put together that makes you keep yearning for more.

New Year's Day 2013 Cali Pinot Blind Tasting: Disgorged on Jan 2006. Bottle was open the night before, sealed and roughly a half bottle was served the next afternoon. Soaring full throttle nose is massively dense with earth tones (mushroom), orchard fruit and baked bread. Palate is dense and full bodied yet fresh, lively and luscious. A wonderful Champagne.

I believe this is the 2006 version of this wine. What a powerhouse. There are lovely mushroom and earth notes on the nose and palate, but the real star here is that powerful pinot noir. This is an extremely rich and fat champagne, showing an incredible amount of opulence. Funny thing, I've never even seen it for sale in these parts.

(From memory). Still completely fresh and lively, no signs at all of tiredness or oxidation. Of course, a fabulous panoply of flavors and scents – mushrooms, forest floor, toast, lemon, and juicy, sweet fruit. Round and delicious. A treat and nothing like the JR professional review.

Really good fresh Champagne. Lots of apple and a bit of brioche. Tasty dryish finish.

Very nice bubbly; this shows very nicely the Ambonnay pinot noir that is so famous. The nose has pear, brioche, ginger, and baked apple. There is just a hint of fresh raspberry. The palate is rich and full bodied with a beautifully plush mouthfeel and lovely spice, fruit, and lees. Very enjoyable. This bottle was disgorged in 5/2012.

Opened at the condo in Kapalua as we were packing to leave for home. Didn't get the disgorge info, but this was a recent purchase. Citrus and biscuit dough. This needs a bit of time in cellar to come together.

The disgorgement date on this is scraped and illegible. anyway, I know that I have had it for at least4 years, maybe 5. this was delicious and to me the bottle age added to the interest. rich and yeasty with the acids muted just enough to soften it. why can't everybody get something like this into the bottle :)

Great character in this with a little wood showing up but giving it a foresty, earthy note, some small berries and orchard fruit mixed together reflecting the 50/50 PN-Chard blend. 8 mo. in (old?) oak, 5 yrs on lees. Dig the purple label (designed by Laeticia?).

Bottle disgorged in May 2010.

Showing really well now, with deep red fruit and mouth filling richness. As it was open the aromas and flavors deepened, and it became more "winey" and exceptional as a food partner. There is still a lot of material here, and no signs of reaching a maturity plateau, so no worries about drinking up, but gosh it's good now.

June 2011 disgorgement, and a few years of cellaring has been very rewarding. Shows lots of fresh apple fruit, yeast and light toast. The freshness is wonderful as an aperitif, and also cuts through the richness of the Thanksgiving meal.

We were enjoying a Les Freres Marchand 20 Cheese Dinner at home with friends when we sipped this wine. We poured in proper, big bowl, Burgundy glasses. Tiny, barely noticeable bubbles. Aromas of apples and toast pleasant. Powerful, yet silky palate, relatively dry, nice equally strong finish. Our first time sipping this wine...definitely will not be our last!

kul att få prova denna igen, det har hänt rätt mycket och vinet är riktigt bra, det behöver tid helt enkelt, vinet har en härlig mousse och mår bra av lite varmare temperaturer. gott!

Dried hay, lemon, mango-pineapple, very cool character, excellent zip and intensity with a long finish. Solera from '83 was recently re-started. All Chard. Lovely, very interesting.

Of the 12 or so of these in my cellar, this is the second that hasn't tasted quite right. Probably 88 or 89 points. Not nearly as good as the others.

Coninues to be a great expression of Pinot fruit. If you take the time with this you can taste the Grand Cru quality. With air the PN just explodes out of the glass. Love this grower!!

Champagnes of Montagne de Reims (Hi-Time Wine Cellars - Costa Mesa, CA): Pear, red apple, crushed minerals, and brioche on the nose. Intense and concentrated, this is a big, powerful wine. Yet as big and burly as it is, it has great energy and does not overwhelm the palate. In fact, I couldn't stop drinking it. Great wine, and probably my WOTN (although the more refined Clouet was a close second). 91-92 points.
