    June 29, 2018 - Bu en succ.
    Trop levuré et sur les amandes, le fruit est écrasé.

    August 22, 2011 - Three bottles opened to check on the 79-pointer I opened back in January. This is just about drinkable but long over the hill....not worth the US$37 I paid per bottle for a case back in 2009. A freshly disgorged bottle might be nice but it seems in Asia there are a lot of "past sell-by date" bottles that don't make it worth taking the chance.

    August 3, 2011 - Good cake notes and medium yeasty aromas; very classic, nice tart apple, medium balance, very high acidity, taut, with a long finish. Very solid. 2/3 PN, 1/3 Chard.

    January 9, 2011 - Deep gold colour. Few bubbles and no mousse except for the immediate pour. Clearly disgorged a long time ago and is now well past its sell-by date. Tastes more like Barley Wine than Champagne. Still drinkable but no great pleasure here.

    July 24, 2010 - This bottle is showing really well! Fresh and exciting with nice citrus notes, delicious finish with slight dosage. Really refreshing.

    (NV Devaux Grande Réserve) This is two-thirds Pinot Noir and one-third Chardonnay. It has a nice, peachy nose, with a hint of smoke. Rather full and quite rich at the start, creamy, with soft acidity. It has a nice flesh, the highest point of definition coming from the rather sharp mousse. A good, easy-drinking wine.
