    May 8, 2020 - Pale to mid straw. Finely chalky nose and attack with a fine, creamy mousse. Some crème pat too. Nicely focused and precise front end, loosening a little to reflect some development and vintage character through the finish with just a hint of dosage. A tiny bit more advanced than a bottle a couple of years ago, but really I should have heeded my advice and left it another five plus years. ****

    February 16, 2020 - So creamy, so generous but all without going flabby. Don't drink at room temp for sure, but so very lovely and for sure in optimal drinking window.

    September 10, 2019 - Fresh butter, tarragon, mature apricots and peaches, sablé, some citrus, strong minerality, light oxidative notes.
    Very fine bubbles, medium body. Still young but very enjoyable.

    January 22, 2019 - Tasted from a magnum. A much more profound nose and rounder structure vs Pierre Gimmonet Les Fleurons tasted alongside. Clearly see the underlying Grand Cru material and difference. Round palate with some muscles too but never over. Keep evolving and drink very well over the dinner. Very enjoyable. No hurry still have plenty of life ahead. 16+/20
