    December 19, 2018 - Tuttons, Covent Garden for sibling lunch. Limited notes.
    Lots of steely minerality and pinot bitterness, the fruit was a little overwhelmed but pleasant enough as a light by-the-glass apéritif house champers.
    More bottle age needed? 88?+

    October 13, 2018 - As usual, juicy, good acidity, has persistence in the aftertaste.

    September 1, 2018 - Affordable Champagne for Summer; 8/1/2018-9/2/2018 (España - Spain): Another champagne that would need more years in the cellar. Too young right now. Unbalanced between acidity and bitterness. I would wait. Have to recognise I got fatigued palate. € 27. Dosage: 9 g / l

    Otro champán que necesitaría más años en bodega. Demasiado joven ahora mismo. Desequilibrado entre acidez y amargor. Yo esperaría. Tengo que reconocer que a estas alturas ya padezco un poco del síndrome de "paladar fatigado". 27€. Azúcar: 9 g/l

    June 16, 2018 - Lots of yeasty notes on the nose bridge with generous flavors of peaches, plums, white cherry, and yellow apple. A rich wine driven by fruit dominant flavors and a powerful apple lemon finish.
