Still fresh but a hint of sherry on the finish.

3rd out of 4 bottles. First two were excellent. This third one was below par.

Rather odourless except for a little stinkyness. I think I at one point caught a wiff of cork taint?

Pretty tasty, but nothing exceptional. A hint of "cooked wine".

I really did not enjoy this as much as previous bottles which we drank in 2014. I think this was a bad bottle, so I wont rush the last one left.

Cork was completely straight but swelled slightly after a while. Im guessing 2011 disgorgement.

Cooked. Suspect it was sitting on wine store shelf for much too long.

(Disgorged spring of 2011) Yellow colour with a stream of bubbles. Incipient maturity showing minerals and honey and with a rather intensive palate of mature red apples and bitter almonds and with a very promising future with the balance of fruit and acidity on the finish.

Blush , strawberry skins, rose nectar lifted , sleek and moreish notes of red currants , stewed aged red burg fruits and finishing with presence. Delicious and serious at the same time.

Tasted blind. Quite dark and evolved as well, overripe apples, dried fruit, slightly spirity even. The most evolved and tired in the lineup as well on the palate, a bit flat, flabby, nice length. Past its best based on this bottle, drink up. 87-89

Tasted blind. Quite dark and golden in colour, almost as evolved as Comtes de Champagne. Quite oxidative on the nose, bruised apples, dried fruit, nuts. A bit tired on the palate, still quite complex and vibrant, fresh and long. The groups' favourite. Drink up. 91-93

Vintage Champagne: Orange golden colour. Very few bubbles, seems more mature than Billecard CNF '96. Intense nose of white stonefruits, coffee, butter, toast, popcorn, caramel and orange or tangerine rind. Vinuous and very well balanced. Classy.

Superb. Better than Dom. Lemon cream pie in bubbly form. One of my best champagne experiences. Wish I could take it vs some 2002 piper vintage but those bottles are impossible to find these days.

62%PN, 38%CH, medium orange in colour. It performed even better than the 1981 Bollinger R.D. on the night.

I quite enjoyed this one.Got it at an early evening open air bistro in a relaxing mode. I like the weight on the palate, the mineral/chalky, nervy backbone and overall appearance in the mouth, nice bottle.

Fluid and tensile, with loads of character, there's no denying the power and grace the Widow exudes. This bottle was endowed with a delicate mousse, tiny, active bead, loads of complexity, and full of stonefruit, citrus, brioche, and mineral goodness.

Interesting. Quite advanced colour, fine mousse which quickly dissipated. Nose of apples, lemon, toffee and pepper. Tastes of apples and butter toffee. Given the citrus elements on the nose, surprised by the lack of acidity. Made the wine feel a bit flabbly. Wife said "soft". Now, I've been trying to avoid that word in TNs but as it's a 3rd party quote I think it's allowed and certainly merited in this case. A soft, smooth wine with no angularity and consequently not much interest. Incidentally, by hour 2, this wine was almost completely flat. Is this a bad bottle?

clearly the best champagne I've ever had, given my limited experience with the bubble. tons of yeasty goodness, and layers upon layers of secondary flavors. (12th wedding anniversary)

Nice citrus and floral flavors with a dash of Lychee. No matter how many wonderful boutique Champagnes I drink, I will always get excited for Veuve!

Dinner at Joel Robuchon, Monaco (Joel Robuchon, Monaco): I normally hold that Champagne tastes better en magnum, but served by the glass at Robuchon, Monaco, this was pleasant rather than good - a little step down from the last few surprisingly pleasing bottles I have had. The nose had a nice lift to it, with white fruit, apples and a little straw and yeast. On the palate, fine mousse and lemony acidity framed simple but pleasant white fruited notes. A little trial of lemon zest and mineral trailed away at the end.

Dark rosé color, a medium intensity nose shows wild strawberries and quince. On palate though, it seems a bit tired and lacks some acitidy and punch.

Fine, long persisting bubbles. Medium lemon-gold. Nose of bread, toast, and red apple. Same on palate. Medium + acidity. Medium sweet. Nice. Not all that complex though. Medium length finish. Would pair well with spicy Thai food or serve as desert.

WSET III, part 2; 12/3/2011-12/4/2011 (Portland, ME): Medium yellow/gold color; good persistence of mousse. On the nose, lemon, grapefruit; bready. Medium body, high acid, delicate mousse on the palate. Very good.
