    September 22, 2019 - Paws II crisp with deep wall of tense mineral driven or hard fruits. Nice citrus lift keeps this tasting fresh and clean.

    September 2, 2019 - Taittinger Comtes de Champagne 2002.
    Herlig rik nese på den unge siden.
    Brødbakst, autolyse, krydder og epler.
    Nydelig intensitet og flott dybde.
    Fantastisk munnfølelse - mulig den beste i smakingen.
    Frukten brer seg ut og danser i munnhulen.
    Vibrerende friskhet.
    Elegant, kraftfull og leken.
    Stor kompleksitet.
    Svært ung, men ingen skam å drikke nå.
    Vil utvikle seg pent over mange år.
    Helt superb presis finish, hvor mineraliteten nesten føles som tanniner. 95p

    July 17, 2019 - 2002 Vintage Champagne horizontal (Elystan Street, London): Last wine of a spectacular evening. And even though the palate was tiring and the memory is foggy I think I thought something along those lines: Acacia honey, roast nuts, brioche - sublime balance and very good ageing potential. The best BdB of the night.
