  • Dom Perignon at Les Nomades (Les Nomades Chicago): Very cleaning color for its age, toast, nutty, walnut, grapefruit, lots of lively spice, long finish. Exceptional a real delight for the end of the evening.

  • Quick note from a friends 50th bday party. Was amazed at how many bubbles it still had. Hazelnuts, wax, elder berries, citrus and aged. Actually really enjoyed although its obviously past it's prime.

  • Golden flowers, macadamia nuts, amazing florals and honeysuckle and jasmine. A light saber beam of lemon minerality and lemon meringue. Multi layered and super complex. Superb nose that lingers and permeates your senses. Lots of biscuits and richness. Glorious and wondrous wine! The best champagne that I have tasted for a long time.

  • Peter's 40th (Summer Pavilion, Ritz Carlton, Singapore): Amazing – this was what aged Champagne is all about. What a nose this had - nutty and creamy and intensely honeyed, with ripe apples and kumquats and perfumed flowers underlined by shades of earthy minerality - Wow! It was immediately arresting straight out of the bottle. On first sip, the palate did not seem to have the same intensity as the nose, but then it just grew and grew in the mouth until it took on an absolutely palate-staining immensity by the time it hit midstride, just layering the taste buds with layer after deep layer of apples and kumquats and sweet lemons, all this was lined by a tremendous amount of bright acidity and quite stirring, almost flinty minerality that drove the wine into a mindblowing finish - long, full and powerful, yet wonderfully focused, with lots of nutty, umami accents tumbling out amidst the lovely mineral notes. Amazing, complex stuff. This was a wine that was at once explosive, yet also precise and effortless. Wonderful, and quite at peak. What a start to the dinner.

  • Toasty bread, cream soda and apple. Surprising that this from a bottle that survived a house fire.

    (Dom Perignon) A magnum of 1975 Dom Perignon was next. The ’75 was more herbal, but herbal in a good way. There were also more minerals here, with hints of granulated sugar and toast, along with some rye crisp. It was very fresh as well, more spiky in its acidity and drier in its personality. It was still excellent

    (Dom Perignon) The first magnum was an original release and had a nice, warm nose of mature toast and cream soda, along with wheat and baked caramel apple in the background. In the mouth, it was still fresh out of magnum, warm and round, nutty and creamy with caramel flavors. It had medium weight but was still spritzy, and Wendy found its ‘acidity perfect.'

    (Dom Perignon) The second magnum of 1975 Dom Perignon was an ‘Oenotheque wannabe,’ which wasn’t surprising since it was disgorged in 1995. Clean, gamy, pungent and fresh, it was still very good but not nearly as complex or as interesting as the original bottling. Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby.

    (Dom Perignon) was a little tired as well, perhaps past its prime or just an affected bottle
