Zippy, acidic, with the lovely toastiness you would expect from a top notch Champagne. The finish satisfies...I could see magnums of this aging well for 5 years. Drink

    August 24, 2020 - Ending August by the Sea; 8/22/2020-8/26/2020 (Alicante - España): At the right temperature and still being a young bottle, it worked quite well and refreshed the beginning of our lunch.
    Aromas of sponge cake with lemon curd, nuts and slate mineral. On the palate it was a bit short but fresh and harmonious. Always a suitable choice in any time being a dry and oxidative sparkling lover.

    A la temperatura adecuada y aún siendo una botella joven, funcionó bastante bien y refrescó el inicio de nuestro almuerzo.
    Aromas a bizcocho con lemon curd, frutos secos y a mineral de pizarra. Al paladar se mostró un poco corto aunque fresco y armónico. Siempre una elección adecuada en cualquier ocasión para los amantes de los espumosos secos y oxidados.

    August 23, 2020 - I'm not much of a champagne drinker, but the wife and I thought we'd give this a shot to celebrate the conclusion of a difficult week in preparation for our upcoming move.

    Pale gold in color, its reasonably aromatic with a rich nose of golden delicious apples, citrus and toast. It has a gripping acidity, but this is softened somewhat by the creaminess afforded by the effervescence. The flavor profile consists of lemon, more of that golden delicoius apple and some peach along with more toast and a noticeable minerality. The finish is fairly long-lasting and dominated by citrus notes that eventually evolve into a faint peach...

    Not the world's best champagne but certainly enjoyable. Cheers!

    July 30, 2020 - I wrote a note a couple weeks back on this particular lot,2015 vintage, disgorged just recently in 2019, lot L047831B102780,that funky saline yellow fruit,nougat,the chalky sour finish,is so apparent now,invigorating this 2015 champagne,zesty apple/lime/orange peel, dang, I might be hooked...if you step back that's quite a vinous/mineral chardonnay/pinot blend.....again this is the 2015 base,run your lot numbers on website....

    July 12, 2020 - Richer body. Not austere.
    Needed time to open up
    Riper fruits
    Off dry. Perhaps a bit too much dosage
