    November 7, 2015 - Light funk, strengthening spice and dry white flowers on the racy nose. Floral high notes sweeten with air time. Firm acid on the palate but crisp rather than harsh, light meyer lemon. Good textural complexity but not sticky. Better with more time. 95+

    July 10, 2015 - I wish I could say more about this wine, but all I wrote down was “really good!” And it was.

    July 10, 2015 - Farve-a-thon 4.0: Our lone Ambonnay, but it didn't need company. While great on release, this champagne has moved to a whole new level of late. World class.

    April 23, 2015 - Haven't had this for a while, and I thought this bottle was smoking. Definitely class in the glass. The debate at the table was between whether its built essentially for the long-term (yes), if its also very enjoyable now (again, a yes from me), or both. We had it along side the just releasing 2000 d'Ambonnay, which I liked a lot. One or two of the ten of us liked the 00 better than the 95.

    April 22, 2015 - Light funk on the nose with savory perfume, gouda, wood notes, warm bread and oyster shell. Honeysuckle emerges with air time. Light wood and vanilla on the palate with a background sweetness. Extremely strong acidity. This wine is built for the ages, but is starting to open up for current enjoyment. This should merit an even higher score in the future. 96+
