    February 12, 2017 - Sept 2014 disgorgement. Very much marzpian and hazelnut with a mature/aged feel.

    January 28, 2017 - Classic, signiture Bollinger. Medium gold color; perfect efferversence; yeast, toast, pineapple and hints of lemon on the nose; toast brioche, almonds and peach on the palate with a full, long finish.

    January 8, 2017 - A special treat. At the right point of evolution for me. Sadly my last bottle.

    January 7, 2017 - Courtesy of tlv. Light golden color. Notes of apple, marshmallow and toasted almond with a subtle funky quality underneath. Medium bead with flavors of grilled apple, pear, citrus and vanilla cream.

    January 7, 2017 - Saturday Lunch with Friends and Wine (Happ Inn - Northfield IL): Lots of ripe and powerful apple throughout, with at least as much toast and yeast notes. Certainly good in its style, but this will become very bready/ yeasty in the next few years, which I doubt I will like.
