    February 8, 2019 - Moving the right direction, this wine continues to get better. Still quite primary, requires more time before regular consumption. 94-95

    February 1, 2019 - 24k gold color. Mixture of fat and tiny bubbles with a reticent nose. Lemon pound cake with slightly bitter almonds and deliciously sweet lemon mineral water. Wonderful champagne, a top five for me.

    January 11, 2019 - More forthright and linear than the sinuous, floaty 2004. Substantial weight and sherberty mousse. Creamy, fat, well defined. Pleasure giving in the most direct way imaginable.
