Another fantastic bottle of this spectacular Champagne. Showed great oxidative richness that was like Grand Cru Burgundy. This just happened to have bubbles. Wonderful tonic note with cherry skins and brioche. Serious wine, but also so fun to drink.

Quite nice, but didn't seem quite as expressive as some of the other bottles of 2013 that I have had.

Deep, dark, and sexy. Black berries, baking spices, and a vein of savory undertones. Classic Jaffurs Syrah.

Seriously delicious stuff! I'm sure this will gain complexity over time, but right now it is chalk full of juicy stone fruits, zippy acidity, and tons of pleasure.

Dark fruit, but showing a touch more elegance than my previous bottle.

Spiced apples and even a touch of youthful tingle on the tongue. Another irresistible bottle.

The best 2013 KB I have had yet. Exploded from the glass with perfumed fruit. Delicious stuff that was very hard to put down. A KB firing on all cylinders.

So wonderful to check in on this wine after 2 years. Showed a darker side this time with black berries, black plums, and darker spice notes. Not as pretty and lifted as my previous bottle, but still so utterly delicious and fascinating. This showing actually reinforced the aging capacity of this wine. It was more tightly wound and encouraged me to be patient with my other bottles. Hints of perfumed bright red fruit and roses fluttered over the top of my last glass, just to remind me of how pretty this wine can be.

Ridiculously good again. Wonderfully deep and complex with maintaining tonic brightness. Utterly delicious.

Very pretty and elegant wine. After a 3 hour decant, this wine showed great clarity and prettiness. It lacked a little bit of the aromatic lift that I was hoping for, but overall quite nice.

Quite good and definitely improved with air. Ripe pear, soft herbs, and wonderfully saline. I would wait 1-2 years before opening one.

I should have read my previous note before opening. This NEEDED 3 hours before enjoying. Dark and unyielding until our last glass, about 3 hours after being opened... That last glass was great though.

Drinking very well right now and showing tons of classic KB Keefer notes, just maybe a touch darker in the fruits.

Very well balanced and showing complexity. I look forward to watching this develop over time. The palate was very nice, but I hope my next bottles shows a a bit more expressive nose.

Wonderful youthful place to check in on this one. Spiced peach and zesty citrus with a strong vein of salinity. Touch of minty herbaceousness adding the layers of complexity.

Balanced and elegant. I feel like there is a slight shift in the wines at KB and this is the first wine that showed that to me. Seemed less glossy and wasn't all about pure pleasure. This seemed more serious. I am a long time KB buyer and have loved the pleasure driven rock n' roll style, but this is an interesting shift and I am looking forward to seeing it develop.

Dark, savory, and rich. This didn't feel like what I am used to with Kutch, but will be interested to see how this wine continues to evolve.

Enjoyed over two days. I am sure glad I did too, because on day two this bottle really started to shine. Darker and more muted on day one, but upon opening on the second day, it burst from the glass with perfumed fruit. Boasting violets, rose petals and candied red cherries. Wonderfully elegant weight to this wine while still being substantial and serious.

My experience was very much in line with MFW. Rich and creamy. I would have thought this was an Auslese, if I didn't know better. Seemed to get lighter with air though. Candied fruit, touch of spice, and despite it's ripe character - well balanced.

After the fruit showed an initial raisined note, it seemed to brighten up and ultimately show greater freshness than I expected. Great weight and balance to this wine and quite enjoyable.

Young, but what a wine! Very pretty, with perfumed fruit and wonderfully expressive juicy fruit. Drank over two days and it shut down considerably on day two. This wine will definitely benefit from bottle age, but what it showed me makes me very happy.

Rich and tropical, showing the softness and ripeness of the vintage. Lacked the zip that I was hoping for, but made up for it in pure luxury of fruit.

Black as night with deep dark and savory notes of herbs, forest floor, roasted tobacco, and black plums. I didn't expect this to have the density that it possessed. I would wait at least 5 years before opening.

Showed quite a bit of reduction early on and required a few hours of air before showing the prettiness that I expect with this wine.

July 2012 disgorgement. Showing more oxidative notes, due to the riper base wines. But still very good and wonderfully complex and interesting. Tonic, brioche, candied citrus, and warm apple.

This felt quite a bit older than my previous bottle, for some reason. Tannins were nicely integrated, but fruit seemed slightly baked and tired. It was good, but just seemed older than I expected it to be...

I drank this bottle over two days and it was a very interesting bottle to watch. One day one the wine was more acid driven with savory, herbal and bitter melon notes. The vintage character was at the forefront and less of typical style of this bottling, that I am used to. On day two it was fat and rich making me think of Chardonnay from the region, rather than Pinot Bianco. But, with air the wine gained nuance and interest. Still was rich, but added depth and highlights of freshness that made me happy. I will be interested to see what my next bottle is like.

Very pretty with sweet red fruit and wonderfully perfumed notes of roses and violets. Tannins are fully integrated with soft sweet fruit. Very nice.

Wonderfully complex and very enjoyable. Meyer Lemon, sweet grapefruit, and white peach with a flutter of florality. There is a wonderful balance with the racy palate that somehow shows soft and rich mouth-filling deliciousness. Wonderful undertone of minerality that almost reminds me of crushed seashells. To me, this is a top level GG.

Enjoyed this bottle over two days. On day one it was open and pretty with notes of violets, mint, and black cherries. Day two this wine clamped down and the tannins took over. Was very dark, more savory, and clinched. I will give my next bottle a few more years before checking back in.

Very enjoyable. Spiced peaches and sweet herbs with a creamy mouthfeel and touch of zest at the back of the palate. In a wonderful place of maturity while still showing quite a bit of energy.

Definitely a better showing than my previous bottle. Showed quite a bit of weight and darkness this time. The high tones that I love with great Monprivato bottlings wasn't there, but once there was food added to the equation - this wine really started to shine. Wonderfully balanced and enjoyable.

So, so tasty. Exotic guava and gooseberry notes keep this succulent little beauty almost impossible to put down. Wonderful acidity to keep your palate fresh.

Just a baby, but what incredible energy! Almost crunchy acidity and minerality running through this wine. Crystalline is a great word for it. Lime, lemongrass, and fresh soft herbs. The sweetness is there, but the laser sharp acidity and oyster shell iodine type note really kept the palate light and racy.

Seems a little shutdown on the nose, but what I did get was quite nice. Wonderful QPR and introduction to the house style. Ample lime notes, lemon verbena, and white peach, with tons of chalky minerality on the palate. I'd be very curious to try this wine again in 4-5 years.

The tannins and acidity were a little out of balance with the fruit. There were definitely things to enjoy, but overall the wine lacked depth and balance.

Dark wild berries, savory black minerality, baking spice, and a flutter of rose petals. I feel like it never really unwound and showed me what it was all about. What I did see, I liked though. Hoping my next bottle is a touch more expressive and pretty. Don't get me wrong though, this was good stuff.
