Community Tasting Notes 10

December 31, 2015 - Full, mature, deep and bit rustic nose. Ripe apple, dark chocolate and some hints of roasted hazelnuts. Appealing.
Fat, broad, rich and roasted palate. Good acidity stands up. Very mature and harmonius. Good concentration. Balanced freshness and quite long finish.
Mature champagne-champagne that should be consumed now. Surprisingly fresh, though. Better than expected.1 person found this helpful Comment

January 30, 2015 - Yellow colour with fine and tiny bubbles.
Incipient maturity on the nose showing yellow apples, marzipan and nuts. Nice glass development. Nice fresh fruityness on the palate with a nice licuorice root finish. Too much quinine gives a bit too much bitterness for me.
Matched the lobster soup perfectly though.

January 6, 2013 - Nice and mature nose with apples and earth. The structure is not bad but it lacks a bit of fruit and length. Ok but not more.

July 31, 2011 - No apples this time. This one showed all the characteristics that I had expected first time around. The PN component is dominating this Champagne, just as it should in Bouzy.

July 26, 2011 - The best with this wine was the nose. The looks and taste reminded more of French Apple Cider than Champagne. I will have to try another bottle shortly to see if this was an isolated happening. I have always liked this producer so I'm hoping it was just bad luck in a bottle. It rarely happens that my wife declines a Champagne refill but this was one of those rare moments.
