August 17, 2014 - Rather deeply colored. Fine, persistent mousse. Bold aromatics of cherry, strawberries and red berry jam. Red fruits dominate the palate of this ripe, full tilt wine. Gently sweet with good acidity this is delicious but not particularly complex at this stage. I will give my one remaining bottle a few more years in the cellar. Drink 2018 to 2022.

January 5, 2014 - Very delicate and beautiful both in quality and taste. Pale apricot pink.
December 16, 2013 - Good wine but I think it's too young to fully enjoy (giving benefit of doubt). Currently the NV Rose is more expressive than this and, at half the cost, is a much better value.

June 30, 2013 - Light pinkish orange in, very toasty nose and not too much red fruit here, in fact a bit like a burgundy white with bubbles. Palate mirrors the nose and very long mineral filled finish. Only drawback is, after 2 hours in the glass, the nose turned into burnt rubber and plastic, which wont blow off after a few hours more, otherwise should merit a much higher score. Stylistically wise very different from 99 and 02 of the same cuvee, more toasty and more masculine.

April 30, 2013 - I liked this more than others at the table; fresh strawberries and cream accented by mineral and yeasty notes with bright acids and effervescence keeping it very light and easy to drink. Not as complex as the Taittinger, but very enjoyable.
