    April 24, 2015 - Ripple and Ridonculous Wines (Ripple - Cleveland Park - Washington, DC): Rich and intense yet lively and bracing. Brioche, gorgeous minerals, spice and potpourri. Long, intense, such purity, a lovely Champagne. Wow. I have “wow” and “elegance” written down three times apiece. Absurdly good. From magnum.

    March 15, 2015 - From magnum. Off the cork pull crisp notes of chocolate and barrell. Lean, tight, and very pure. Very, very long and bright. We shall see how it eases in.

    January 1, 2015 - Drinking beautully out of the late disgorged magnum. Not as mesmeric as the very, very best champagnes - but a wonderfully balanced, enjoyable bottling

    November 23, 2014 - Fra magnum.
    Flott parfymert nese, vanilje, søt gjærbakst.
    Ganske svær og breial vin.
    Meget bra konsentrasjon og akkurat nok friskhet til å takle det. Ingen skarpe kanter.
    Sitter lenge i munn. 92-93p
    Drikker du bare stram Mesnil, sliter du med denne.
