    July 25, 2016 - Rich in the GA style, but in a great drinking place right now. Expect this to age well, but hard to not keep opening bottles in the short term.

    July 17, 2016 - need some air before it open up, let it breathe for 2 hours before consuming.

    July 10, 2016 - Previous notes apply but this champagne gets better every time we open a new bottle. Full and elegant mouth feel with toasted brioche, lemon and more. Fantastic wine.

    July 9, 2016 - Most excellent. Brioche, lots of tiny bubbles. Smooth. Medium finish of brioche.

    July 1, 2016 - Great finesses and balance. Ample fruits, mineral and lovely acidity. Structure is at grand cru level. A superstar at this price point.
