    May 15, 2016 - Average bubbly, not too complex but no hard edges either

    May 15, 2016 - Brunch (Tim and Elliott's Place, San Francisco): Light golden; aromatics are minimal to medium, slight yeast; palate has a bit too large bubbles, slight bitterness which is odd, fruit is minimal; short finish. They recently changed the vineyard to grapes sourced from California for their NV and it is a drastic step down from what used to be a very decent wine. 80-82

    March 12, 2016 - Didn't focus on this enough but I remember liking my recent Austin TX btl more. Need to try another btl soon.

    January 1, 2016 - Great second bottle. Cherry berry toast. Always the best quality for cost in USA. I also enjoy the undulating subtle changes over the years.

    January 1, 2016 - Tasted among a series of champagnes and sparking wines on New Years Eve (2016). This was the slightly more flavored than the Freixenet. It is consistently a great value and aside from being on the light side, it represented good value. The champagnes included (in the ascending order of scores) Freixenet (Black bottle) 85, Gruet Blanc Des Noirs NV -88, Perrier Jouet Brut NV - 90, Roederer Estate Brut (Anderson Valley - 91, and Krug Vintage 2003 -96
