    January 20, 2022 - Green apple, a bit nutty, not much bread. 02/03 base vintage. Not going back for more, but enjoyed what we had!

    December 30, 2021 - 2000 base vintage, disgorged Nov 2016.

    Deep golden; languorous mousse; hazelnuts, red apple peel, apricot, almonds (some whiffs reminded me of a fino), vanilla, honied minerality, dried herbs (marjoram, I swear); medium acidity...wish it were a little longer, tbh; would probably be in the 94 range if so.

    My senses to such things aren't super honed, but this probably doesn't have any more to give: drinking at peak, I'd wager.

    Overall, solid damn wine; oaky oxidative goodness. Will absolutely buy more of this (in more recent vintage) if it can be found.

    September 10, 2021 - way too many entries on that wine so far... so I decided to post here, as it is easier to write down the details of the solera in here... as it is a NV

    Here are 2002 and 2003 blend, bottled in 2004, disgorged in 2017... My oh My ... No dosage

    perfect year in 2002, and very warm 2003... has it importance to me... for sure here

    Nose of nuts, pecan, honey from bushes, not the little young flowers... powerful nose which evolves a lot... getting complex and vinous...

    Palate is likewise, powerful yet dry, but with a shorter finish than previous releases, where the 03 might kick in... would be a 93/95 with just a little more acid punch !!!

    great food wine though, with big mouthfeel, and great complexity... old champagne lovers :)
