    November 27, 2014 - Disgorged June 2010. Roundly excellent. Had a savory mushroom-y note that everyone remarked on.

    2011 Champagne Catalog, 6/1/2011 (link)

    (NV Pehu-Simonet "Transparence" Extra-Brut) ($60.00) “This wine is an accident; it had malo,” David said. 70%PN 30%CH – all 2007 and all Verzenay, disgorged 11/10. Whereas last year’s ’06-based cuvée managed well with one gram of RS, this ’07 has three, just the sensible palate-based approach every grower should take. The PN fragrance is almost rotund; the palate is generous and savory, with a veal-like gelatinousness and buckwheat-y umami; a wonderfully warming and kindly wine, for a cozy Winter evening.
