    April 16, 2017 - This came up at Total Wines for an attractive price. For me it was unattractive, nothing wrong with the bottle. For a Brut it is sweet, something no appealing for me. Fine small bubbles, citrus nose, limited flavor interest - no creaminess or bread/biscuit that I love (Bollinger Special is my go to, on the chard side Lancelot Royer Cv de Chevaliers). The finish is sweet, average, not noteworthy. I bought this on notes, don't know what I got versus everyone else but it doesn't sound the same and this well stored, undamaged wine. The domestic Ferrer vintage is far better.

    March 11, 2017 - Deep yellow color with a medium mousse. Biscuit and apple notes. Coarse bead with hints of citrus on the finish. Enjoyable considering the price point.

    (NV Heidsieck & Co Monopole Blue Top Brut Champagne) Brings some nice aromatic complexity with pear, a light nuttiness, and abundant spice. The palate is light, creamy and tart with a lingering, spice filled finish.

    (NV Heidsieck & Co. Monopole Blue Top Brut Champagne) Purchased Summer 2000. An attractive light onion-skin colour. Fairly coarse bead. The nose carries a light yeastiness together with some citrus fruit. A middle of the road palate, with more subtle biscuity yeasty notes sitting with sharp citrus fruit acidity. Mousse is a little aggressive. Pleasant drinking.
