    June 11, 2021 - Drinking so well right now, may be my new favorite domestic sparkler (Ultramarine BdB is waiting in the wings though.)

    Loads of brioche, biscuit, and maybe even some Parmesan with a touch of sweetness on the finish. Paired well on Day 1 with Pizza and just as well on day 2 with Grilled Lobster. Ignore the 'best by 2020' dates, this easily has another 3+ years to go.

    August 16, 2020 - Slightly corked but still enough to ruin it

    January 19, 2019 - Oh yeah, this is good juice. Nutty and yeasty on the nose and through the palate, with the usual green apple. Acidity is perfect. Drinking great right now.

    January 19, 2019 - 8th Annual Holiday Dinner and Cellar Raid - A Month Late (Naperville, IL): Part of wine dinner and cellar raid so did not take detailed notes. A Friend brought this to start things off before everyone arrived. This was one of the best sparkling wines I have ever tasted. All I could remember was the nutty/almond flavors that come through on Cristal. Great start to a great evening.

    September 22, 2018 - Very hi-toned nose, almost pungent nose with pineapple and kiwi; very broad and almost creamy on the palate with a lactic quality; the palate is very nice with contrasting, complex qualities. The nose and palate are not very connected but overall it is a very interesting and pleasant quaff. A huge contrast to a '99 Philipponat Goisses tasted alongside.
