Likes this a lot. Tasted side by side with 2005 Le Cran. At first that one was brighter but with time the subtle grace of this wine won out.

Much improved from last bottle 2 years ago. Still decent acidity and dosage noticeable but better integrated. Would prob drink within next few years if any left

At a great spot for drinking. Slightly oxidative notes. Burnt raisin. No sulfur so wouldn't hold for too long. Love this wine.

Aromatic. Strong taste of apples, almost like a cider. Dry but not austere. Very ripe fruit. Long finish. 07 vintage. So tasty.

this particular bottle was a bit flat in the bubble department.
After a few hours open, the 2002 brightness starts to show. Nice apple and brioche.

Very nice bottle but I'm getting too used to unique grower champagnes, so did not wow me for the price.
That said, it was solid and has potential for long aging.

Stunning! Had this last year at MW event in SF and it was my wine of the night then. Now had at eleven madison park and it complemented
7 different amuse bouche courses perfectly. AT a beautiful drinking point right now, with many years left. Beautiful, serene and flat out delicious.

Golden amber color with mature notes on the nose.
Lemon and spices on palate with initial strong acidity but very weak finish.
Does seem heavy and somewhat wooden. Disjointed. Good effort but didn't come together.

45% Pinot Meunier, 35% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir.
Clay and limestone on belemnita quadrata chalk. Aged on lees 5 years.
disgorged 7/06. base 2000.
Dosage: 8 g/l.
ripe fruit, pear, touch of oxidation.
Can't wait for '02 base.

Taken at first by exotic spice flavors and wasn't sure I liked it. When I returned to bottle some hours later I was completely captivated by an incredible mouthfeel of interlaced viscosity and delicate froth that dissolved endlessly. There was an interplay between bright lemon and a salinity I have never tasted in champagne before. The finish was extremely long lived. Wow.

enjoyable as an easy summer sparkler. Agree with comments about sweetness. Not overly cloying but could have used a bit less. Nice rose color, crowd pleaser.

opens with nose of burnt toffee and fig. Palate is vibrant with still intense acidity that cuts your tongue and is nowhere near resolved. Citrus and green apple notes predominate the finish. Would like to revisit in 3-5 years.

Fruit less forward than prior occasions so either peaking or settling down. Vibrant acidity still present so will likely try next bottle in another couple of years. Still very enjoyable drinker. From 2000 crop. Am very interested in trying the 2002 which is as still yet unreleased.

Pale yellow with small pinpoint bubbles. Very elegant and ethereal.
It was very slow to open up however and probably could have used decanting or to drink it more slowly.

Good wine with more acidity than last bottle. Did seem a bit too sweet and makes me wonder if dosage is too high?

Not nearly as good as other bottles of this I've had. Came across as too sweet and not well integrated. Not balanced by acidity. Hope it doesn't mean drinking window is passing on it.

Bolts right out of the starting gate. 70% chardonnay/30% pinot noir. Golden color. Chewy, silky texture and mouthfeel. Toast, fig, biscuit on the nose. The pinot noir core shines through with tastes of cherry, almond and orange peel. Beautifully integrated and well within it's drinking window. 2-3 more years in cellar should really bring it all home.

enjoyed. Nicely sweet. Not enough acidity to balance out the sweetness though.

big, vinous wine. Nose was more than moderately complex. On the palate, seems to have some winning elements but so far not
more so than at the top range of most NV's. For price paid, would want more. I can see this developing nicely in another 2-3 years.

have loved this recently but this particular bottle didn't come together nearly as well. Tried it again after 2nd day stoppered but it still was not harmonizing. notes of apple and citrus on the nose. light golden color and medium sized bubbles.

Never could quite get out of the gate. Kept hinting at underlying depth and complexity but the nose was muted and the
taste came across as one dimensional. I'm hoping it's just going through a phase and will still emerge in a couple of years.

Medium yellow. Fine bubbles but a bit light in this department. Well integrated. Acitdity was a touch flabby.
Apricot, nuts, apples. Silky and fat texture.

light, clear yellow. Floral, doughy notes on nose. Taste of fruit more muted but with strong minerality on the mid palate. Not entirely integrated and is definately young.

some nice elements but overly harsh on 1st day. By 2nd day less harsh but still overall sense of dysharmony.

good, solid champagne. nice golden color. 100% meunier. 2nd bottle i've tried...just not that big a fan of all meunier I guess.
May get more interesting with age.
