    April 22, 2019 - Absolutely perfect with a spread of smoked salmon, insalata caprese, brown shrimps, avocado, potato salad with bacon, and delightfully chewy baguette. These rich flavours work best with the spicy richness of a Pinot Noir ‘vinifié en blanc’ and their fattiness is cut very nicely by the mousse.

    March 22, 2019 - Purchased at auction - I don’t think they make this cuvée anymore. Not sure when this was disgorged, but probably at least three years ago. The post-disgorgement ageing becomes the wine, it retains a delightfully bright, mineral freshness and energy, and the fruity richness (apple, red berries) is complemented by mature notes of honey and spice. Creamy texture, soft but vibrant mousse, powerful but not without a certain elegance. It reminds me of the Horiot Sève tasted recently - could this be a 2012 (base wine) too? Good stuff.

    October 5, 2018 - Had it at Claire's before dinner. Does not really taste like a pinot noir. Miss the smokiness and colour to the eyes is less dark compared to EO's BdN. Remind more of a Taittinger NV.

    March 7, 2018 - Monthly Tasting Group EEE #068: Pinot Noir / Spätburgunder (@ BD): Yeasty bouquet with white fruits and citrus. On the palate white fruits, some minerals, ripe apples, good acidity and nicely dry, but not bone dry. Very ok, but not really special.

    November 28, 2017 - Faint cherry and lees on the nose. Tingly and refreshing on the palate with cherry fruit. Comes across as dry with a tinge of austerity despite the 8gm dosage. Savory and chewy in a good way. Persistent. 2011 base (75%).
