Dried apricot, grilled lemon, red apple skin, brioche crust, wet travertine, copper, and olive oil. A more academic and direct execution of flavor, with a slightly angular finish that still manages to present a decent layering effect, but does so with a more rigid delivery. I would’ve guessed this was a heavier Pinot Noir or Meunier based Champagne than a BdB.

This is much improved from an off bottle I had recently. More mid-palate depth, flavor expansion (though still a bit limited and linear), and enlongated finish here. The 2010 is a more complex and interesting version in my opinion.

Hold this 2009 for a couple years to see if it can loosen up a bit. 91-92+ points.

Wow, what a nose! Flowers, licorice, tar, some sous bois vegetal notes. Medium plus acid, great length.

Aromatic pop,/ stem inclusion? Lean and mean. Tart red fruit, cranberry, pommegranate, all bio certified.
