    January 2, 2018 - Delicious. Less yeasty than I expected given the age and the extra year en tirage. But a delicious and rich bubbly, as expected.

    August 18, 2013 - Iron Horse Russian Cuvee is a go-to favorite for informal celebrations and "let's have some 'champagne'" nights. Small bubbles and a smooth, easy style have garnered positive reviews even from friends who claim to dislike sparkling wine.

    December 31, 2012 - Yum. Yeasty, rich, tasty, still definitely a brut. Will definitely enjoy the bottle that's been on the lees one year longer.

    December 22, 2012 - Enjoyed with salsa. Bright straw color. Good tight bubbles. Lemon lime and mushy apple. Aggressive fruit start which bleeds off into a buttery yeast. Finishes moderately dry but does not clean up all that well on the back end.
