    May 21, 2016 - A gorgeous young GA. Fruity, fizzy, vivid acidity, long aftertaste... Delicious and refined now but will get better without doubt.

    May 11, 2016 - Nose with yeast. Big palate, great balance and a long finish. Big Champagne, not superb.

    April 8, 2016 - Tuscany BYO (Valby): Lovely and rich nose filled with plenty of sweet apple fruit, smoke and hazelnuts.
    The palate is equally impressive with lot of red and yellow sweet apple flavor with a touch of hazelnut and vanilla.
    Plenty of oak and sweetness but very true to the house style. A great wine.
    Consistent with previous note!

    March 30, 2016 - Pale green/gold appearance.

    Lovely nose of pastry, honey , lemon , tangerine and melon.

    Lots of autolytic flavor, lemon, honey and pastry on the palate. A nice long finish. A great bottle!

    This example was disgorged in November 2013 and I guess would last another decade if well stored.
