    December 14, 2013 - Foodie Thanksgiving. Big, balanced. Young yet. Excellent champagne.

    June 11, 2013 - Wonderful and fruity style. Not a complex and complicated wine, but never the less, it's very charming. Lots of fruit but very little acid. Hazelnuts, caramel, dow and toffee. And of course citrus and melon.

    April 6, 2012 - Lot Code 1103. Medium gold color. Nose of bread, nuts, lemon, and shortbread. Abundant, medium bead delivers a mineral, citrus, and slightly floral bread character to the palate, which persists into a nutty, long finish. Delicious and well structured for holding or even developing further in the bottle. Drink or hold.

    November 25, 2010 - Mmm, yeasty, and quite mature, maybe more advanced than I expected but with such gorgeous bread-dough aspect to it. Really lovely while cooking and then to welcome guests to Thanksgiving.

    May 15, 2010 - Lot code 1103. Medium yellow-gold color, medium, abundant bead. Rich nose of honeyed baked bread, almonds, hazelnuts, and a hint of cream. On the palate, this shows some age with rich bread and nut notes that are initially hidden by a honeyed graham cracker essence that makes this very easy to enjoy and seemingly fully mature. Persistent masculine structural elements keep this full on the palate, while a crispness keeps the medium-long finish clean. Really compelling right now from this batch, but likely to make older bones with more time on the cork. Delicious. Drink or hold.
