    March 11, 2019 - Great big and beautiful. Just the right notes of citrus, minerals, and fizz. Wonderful mouthfeel.

    March 6, 2019 - Achim's Magnum Tasting 2017 (Berens am Kai 1 star Restaurant): Würdiger Abschluß eines denkwürdigen Nachmittags. Schon aus der Eintel beeindruckend zeigt er aus der Magnum noch mehr sein Potential. Dezente Haselnußaromatik, aber dominierend ist die Zitrusfrische. Dazu etwas Aprikose und Grapefruit. Beginnt jetzt langsam seinen Höhepunkt zu erreichen für die, die es knackig mögen. Liebhaber reifen Champagners können noch locker 20 Jahre warten. 95+

    November 17, 2018 - From Green Label bottling. Far stronger bottle than the previous ones w gold label and still very vital

    November 3, 2018 - A far better bottle than the last one about a week ago but the fruit is really starting to fade. I'm starting to believe the -96 is at its peak at the moment with some bottles might be closing in on it while others are slightly past. I will likely finish mine within a year.
