May 22, 2016 - 6g Doasge, nicely balanced, maybe a hint too sweet in the finish, but after drinking 20 champagnes of zero dosage every wine feels "sweet", toast, apricot and citrus

Tasted non blind.
Disgorged 04/2015. 6 g/l. Straw to like yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout with tiny, steady beading. Nose of yellow pear, yellow apple, a splash of citrus and a hint of cookie dough. Flavors of lemon, sherry, green apple and tart pear. Bright acidity, full bodied. Drink or hold.

December 13, 2015 - Really liked this, with complex, rich mouth, good intensity, and long finish. Yeasty, slight wood note showing through adding earthy character mixed with pure orchard fruits. 1/3 each grape, aged 5 yrs, 7 mo. in old oak, indigenous yeast, 6g/l.

February 25, 2015 - Dots and Bubbles with the Trait-d-union (Sydney, Australia): Equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier. 2010 vintage base, 5 g/l dosage.
Smoky, graphite and apple nose - draws you into the wine nicely. Clean and slightly tart, the fruit is fairly lean and I feel a touch more density would fill out the palate, but as it stands it is refreshing to drink. Finishes with medium length. A couple of years of bottle age would likely serve it well.

February 3, 2015 - Deg 02-2014 so almost no post disgorgement age - but damn good anyway! This was really a positive surprise. Very reshing and not overly acidic. Like 7-up for adults, with more spice and complexity.. This was really excellent with Spaghetti Cabonada.
