Love the red fruits notes from this bottle. There are hints of greenish due to the vintage but still very lovely at this stage.

Love the intense aromas of floral and green apple. Lingering sharp steel finish. Would have prefer a more structured mid-palate but still a fantastic champagne.

2nd time drinking this. This is fast becoming my favourite "house pour" champagne. More expressive on the 2nd day ending with beautiful rounded persistent finish.

Lots of peach and pear notes. Very enjoyable and lots of structure in the palate. Great stuff.

PNP. Hawthorn and fresh earth notes. Lacks complexity on palate with simple finish. Rather good drinking.

First tasted this in 2016, it is still drinking very nicely. Tea, earthy, mushroom with beautiful palate ending with a long finish.

Like this bottle better than the one disgorged in 08. Deep toasty notes complex with great freshness.

Open at 3pm and poured into a glass bottle. Drank at abt 830pm. Lovely aroma of cherry, tar with great palate. Tannins mostly resolved and drinking very nicely now. It would also hold well for the next 2-3 years.

Fruits mostly resolved so is the tannins. In a nice drinking period now if you like wines with some age.
Red
Lovely with 2nd day much more approachable.
Red
In a very good stage now
Red
Sweet and ripe fruits but well balanced. Nicely made. Definitely need another 10 years at least.

Creamy well balanced with good complexity on the palate. Usually find them too lean but this time was different.

Open 2 hours before drinking. The last time i had this, it was singing, light touched with lovely red fruits and amazing palate but it was opened at 9am in the morning. This time, it was unbalance with hint of stems surrounded with red fruits and sweet finish.

Tea like with mint, lively palate but lacks mid palate. Savory with some tannins
White - Sparkling
Well developed nutty nose, creamy on the palate with sweet lingering finish. This is the first vintage of celebris and drinking at good point now.

Sweet candies sometime with hint of musky notes. Not sure if it is due to the bottle. Lots of tannins on the palate with great fitness. This is my second bottle of this vintage but still underwhelm by it.
White - Sparkling
Beautifully drinking, sweet cherry, orange peel, Lovely acid at the finish.

2007 Nicolas Potel Clos St. Denis Clos St. Denis Grand Cru Pinot Noir (view label images)
No one guess this as Potel. Slightly modern with good red fruits. Transparent and good mid palate. Judging by this bottle Potel did very well in 2007

2004 Domaine Castagnier Clos St. Denis Clos St. Denis Grand Cru Pinot Noir (view label images)
Black tea, with sweet red fruits. Lovely finish. None of the 04 herbal notes. Beautiful juice.
Red
Stunning juice with lovely aromatics and great transparency on the palate.

Crisp and complex. Enjoyable probably will be even better after a few more years.
Red
Very enjoyable with some secondary notes showing and fruits. Palate still rather tight but the freshness from the wine is good. Lovely

Rather austere on the nose but palate was lively with hint of red fruits. Can definitely keep for more time.

Took a while before it came around. Delicious with good palate. Definitely a under rated vintage but still good.
Red
This was more open compared to the last time i had it. Beautiful red cherry notes with firm tannins. Enjoyable now.

Cannot remember when this was consumed. Had superb mineral notes. Great sparking wine.
Red
Aromas of plum with hint of red cherry. Palate had layers of earth and tea finishing was long and savoury. A fantastic wine on its own but it served with Noellat Richbourg and it paled in comparison.

A little more advance than expected. Soya, hawthorn notes. Palate was well balance with some sweetness. Love the palate but not the nose.
