I was disappointed with this Champagne. We bought it in Vegas at a restaurant. First off, it was really lacking on bubbles. It was a general comment by all. Also, it tasted too sweet to be considered Brut. I don't know it was a batch they were trying to unload or just putting lesser quality in this lot and hoping the sweetness will mask? Bit of wet rag yeastiness than bread toast. Buy Roederer Brut instead.

Intense aromas of blackberries, raspberries, cocoa with hints of graphite pencil shavings, vanilla, caramel and dried herbs.
Richly flavoured, deep and intense raspberries, cherries and blackberries with dark chocolate and beautifully integrated oak flavours of vanilla and caramel.
Full bodied, full flavoured, still relatively high acidity and rounded mouth feel finishing dry with firm, but smooth, tannins.
Took several hours of decanting to bring it to this amazing level, the flavours changing with every glass.
Amazing drinking now but enough balls to last well into the next decade.

Yet more proof the French dump their undrinkable dross on us unsuspecting bumpkin convicts. And they charge us royally for the privilege as well. Sharp acidic fruit dominates. It registers a grand zero on the complexity scale with no hints of yeast, toastiness or anything else to lift the wine. Was this even aged on the lees? The finish is medium long but it is just a continuation of the citrus acidity that overpowers all else. I took off an extra 3 points for the profound disappointment. I'm going back to sparkling Tassie wines.

Wine wasn't right. Dull, flavourless and clearly faulty. Returned to store for a refund.
