    December 31, 2018 - Long and concentrated. Not sweet, heavy or acidic; perfectly balanced. A touch chalky rounded by baked fruits. Very enjoyable with and without food.

    December 30, 2018 - The best bottle of 99 Salon I had. Hazelnut, minerals and stone fruit on the nose. Palate was open and expressive. The balance between the fruit and acidity was just right. It drank like a montrachet. 93-94

    December 21, 2018 - Winter Solstice Tasting @ JD's home (Groot-Ammers): Winter Solstice tasting.
    Paired with caviar and served alongside 2004 Pol Roger Champagne Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill. This for me had the upper hand...Just a bit more complete and compelling!

    December 21, 2018 - Winter Solstice Tasting (Jan-Dirk Taams' residence, Groot-Ammers, Netherlands): Fresh but mature style, ripe citrus and nutty evolution, cool minerality, drinking well, at peak.

    December 14, 2018 - From magnum. Very good but not great. Especially compared with the 2003 Selosse, also served in magnum. It is a nice champagne, balanced, elegant, but it has nothing really impressive. No default, but little charm and no distinctive qualities that would make it memorable.
