7/31/2015 - Keith Levenberg Likes this wine: 91 points

Nice Champagne in a firm and bracing, very dry style - I know it's a brut but this could have passed for some low-dosage blanc de blancs. I really like the precision of this, which has kept it in a very young and fresh state; it's very bright and acute for its age. But beyond that I don't find a ton of personality here and it goes without saying that one can have a similar experience with all sorts of grower champagnes a fraction of the price.

Extremely young and primary this could turn out to be a fantastic wine. On the nose there were dried apricots and some squeezed lime. On the palate more dried apricots, even a hint of lemon and after a few hours in the glass some fat butter notes and toast flavors emerged. The wine's character was more broadly sweet and fruit driven as opposed to having any mineral sensations. As is generally recommended, it would seem this needs 5 years plus.

Very good as in previous tasting. Citrus, yeasty nose with a mineral note. Probably at its best. Drink up.

This bottle was shared by Mark H., served at offline held at North Square. I would have to say that we committed infanticide here. Could also be that thus is an example of a champagne that is better served in a glass other than a flute. I might also have been biased by the non-traditional label, the significance of which I did not fully appreciate. I enjoyed everything about the wine except that i had some trouble finding fruit flavors. Lovely golden color. Persistent tiny bubbles. Crisp acidity. Ample yeast/bread dough which I particularly enoy in champagne. Hints of white fruit. I imagine it will develop greater complexity with more cellar time. Grateful to have had the opportunity to taste this new discovery. Will look to buy some.

Nez sur les noix de pin et un peu de levure. En bouche c’est très fin, les bulles sont fines mais courtes. Bonne acidité donnant une longueur intéressante. Excellent!

We started our Tempranillo evening with this bubble. We think this barely legal gal will blossom into a stylish young lady reminiscent of Starck's varying and various architecture that screams over-the-top in so many different languages. We now can forgive Louis Roederer for its celebrity silliness...this is redemption with power, silkiness and elegance.

We have sipped three bottles in the last month primarily to expose different friends to the design of the packaging, which we ventured a guess they might enjoy even more than the shampoo! We think this barely legal gal will blossom into a stylish young lady reminiscent of Starck's varying and various architecture that screams over-the-top in so many different languages.

En ren fräsch doft med gröna äpplen, kalk, citrus och en aning jäst. I smaken även här gröna äpplen, citrus och kalk med en ren tydlig syra. Otippat öppen och tillgänglig.

Lots of autolytic yeast and bread dominates both nose and palate, partially blocking the fruit. Medium+ acidity and good minerality. A bit short and harsh on the finish. Fell short of the Pierre Peters L'esprit d 2008 we had alongside. Good but not great champagne. Might improve with cellaring.

Still painfully young. It showed a dry, beautiful and elegant palate with peaches, apricots, grapefruit, brioche, floral, flint and citrus notes. The texture was sublime and extremely smooth. The finish was pretty lasting with a taut line of acidity. Lots of potential but I found it slightly thin for a champagne of this caliber and unexceptional at this stage. One for cellaring.

Color golden yellow. Light, fine mousse. Nose toast, yeast and a hint of sherry. Palate rich fruit, baked apples, honey, hints of nuts and toast in finish. Note from memory of last night. One of the better aged champagnes I've had.

Cuvee 2009. Bottled in 2010. Disgorged in 2013. PnP out of the fridge.
Beautiful straw color, tiny stream of bubbles.
Nose shows floral qualities, peach, mango, pear, cooking spices, warm bread crust. Slightly rich rather than lean and mean.
The palate reveals tense acidity and beautifully delineated orchard fruits, with some vanilla bean and orange marmalade, tangy spice notes, and a pleasant soil signature.
This great bottle of NV Brut Premier is singing nicely by the 2nd glass, it is drinking well now, and will continue to improve another 2 years, and drink well through at least 2022. Very nice value.

Base: 2010. Floral, lemon meringue nose with a bit of toast. Lemon, lemon zest on the palate with a savory, saline finish. Very fresh, Chablis-like elegance upon opening, gains some power & aged complexity after about an hour. Solid wine with plenty of material to suggest that it can evolve and hold mid-term.

Same comments as our June 18th note: Wow, what a wonderful wine to start the evening. Yellowish gold to the eye. We sipped in big bowl Burgundy glasses that helped to bring out the aromas pears, citrus and slightly smoky. Fine bubbles. Strong mineral freshness that becomes elegant and then slightly tarty...we always liked tarts ;-) Smooth finish. Dry as a desert! Pleased to have quite a few bottles to sip over the coming decades!
