    January 4, 2018 - Light gold color. Drank 2 glasses over an hour. This was a one off bottle I picked up on a bit of a whim. Well, it really turned out to be quite good. This has a brisk nose, fresh witb minerality and sea shell notes, toasted, white fruits. The palate carries through on the theme of being brisk, ocean air minerality that really dances across the tongue, excellent depth with bright citrus fruits and strong mineral accents of chalk and tart apple skin and citrus notes. This finishes with lip smacking freshness. Probably need to be watching for this in the future. A very good extra brut.

    July 15, 2017 - Q3 - 2017 Tasting - Champagne & Caviar - OH MY!! (New York, NY): Wine 15/17 tasted blind - seems like a grower champagne to me with a distinctive profile of high acidity and some caramelized honey notes - very interesting and popular with the group with 8 pennies voted.

    July 15, 2017 - Champagne & Caviar: a lesson in decadence (The Apt): Wine #15: Another one of my favorites from the tasting. Also a great pairing with the crap dip. This was more apple in nature than anything else which I really like. Very enjoyable. (8 pennies)

    December 6, 2015 - EWG 10 Years On Tasting at Conrad's: A bit darker in character and earthier than the '05 Taittinger Comtes BdB, with a little more oxidative notes, brown sugar, tea, and less carbonation than the Comtes. Good high acidity in the back end. Grown on clay soil in Avize, aged only in used barrel, full malo--this explains a lot. I found it a bit difficult to taste the Champagnes out of red Burg glasses though. I am a fan of drinking bubbles out of white Burg glasses, but I think the big glasses did not focus the delicate aromas enough, and the wide rim made the entry too diffuse. Nice bottlefor sure, but not truly exciting. EWG 10 years on tasting.
