BYO (Østerbro): From the L06 disgorgement and I have had it for about 3 years. Vitamins and red apples on the nose. The red apples carries though to the palate which is just packed with flavor. Plenty of buttter, bread, vanilla. The sweetness is present but also a lovely acidity. Loved it.
Intressant att prova detta vin igen. Tyvärr inte lika positiv denna gång. Eken i vinet tar över lite för mycket så vinet känns lite obalanserat. Gula & röda äpplen honung och nån fet känsla är de smakord jag får fram. Doften är härlig men även här märks eken. Dock Lite för mycket av allt, blir nästan bäst när den får stå en stund och bubblorna försvinner. Då kan man nästan tro att det är ett ekat burgundiskt vin
An improvement over my last encounter, this is showing more of a Krug-like classy burnished richness rather than an overt oakiness, with almond and slight butter notes, apricot and pear, there's vinosity here and tension, too.
Deg. Dec 2012 Golden color with quite big bubbles On the nose, Vanilla, butter, citrus, apples On the palate, Honey, vanilla, red apples, very fruity with hint of bitterness in the background. Nutts and wax. The use of oak is very obvious. It will be interesting to see where the other bottles end up during the upcomming +5 years. 89+ Medium finish
Brownbag in Göteborg by Finewines.se (Göteborgs Vinkällare): Yellow with beautiful bubbles. A huge nose of brown licorice that to me was so awful, I just couldn't possibly enjoy this. Over-oaked gone terribly wrong with a lot of foul chemistry. Some loved it though. Usually I'm the one to like the oddballs in tastings, but never this one. (Some said it was not flawed, always amazing how much taste can vary.)

(NV Henri Billiot "Cuvée Julie") ($97.00) Now all ’05, and very much back in form after the rather oaky ’04. Disgorged 1/10, and more homogenous than the more complex Laetitia; a generous feet-on-the-ground mouth-filling Champagne, no sign of the ’05 “issue” but loads of generous easy strength. Saturated, satisfying, easy to “get.”
