    August 30, 2014 - Was good but I think this needs a little more time. It didn't really have it all together in the end. Need a few years to mellow out.

    August 13, 2014 - I was so much more impressed with tonight's btl than a prior btl this spring that I'm not completely sure it was as great as it seemed tonight. That said, I had a nice pour and as much as I doubted this wine I kept thinking how much I now loved it. But its an 03, right! There are latent elements of oxidation but even still I really like this for early drinking. Much more depth than the previous btl. This is a much bigger, more masculine and, currently, more fully realized wine than the Cedric Bouchard I bought along tonight. This has less upside than my Cedric Bouchard. I may buy one of these again but wish it wasn't $130 plus. A reduced bargain price for it being '03 would be more appealing. I wouldn't buy many of these but I may go for one more. Tonight's btl was very very good.

    August 13, 2014 - Champagne & Sushi (Masu, Mpls, MN): medium gold color. Drank 1 glass over 40 minutes. The best bottle to date and the additional bottle time shows. this has always been good, but it has taken on more depth and nuance already. Great nose; intense nose, with earthiness, nutty, almond, wow, mineral, citrus. The palate has excellent energy and weight, but not heavy, toast, citrus, clearly defined and long and caressing on the finish. Love it, my WOTN.

    August 9, 2014 - Excellent. At a home tasting of a dozen different fizzes. Quite surprisingly rich and fuller-bodied than the Comte Taittinger alongside it, which I suppose is not surprising given that Comte is chardonnay only. Voted by all, along with the Comte, as the best of the night (just as well given the price)

    July 29, 2014 - This bottle didn't live up to my memory of Dom. The acidity was very high and more citrus than the almond and yeasty flavors I remembered last time. I prefer vintage piper 02 or 04 to this wine. My tasting, partner, however liked it quite a bit so I am adjusting the score up a notch.
