    July 25, 2019 - Light golden to straw color. Lovely slightly toasted nose, but not over the top. Very small bubbles that become more apparent after having the bottle open for 10 - 15 minutes. Very balanced, almost youthful with remnants of acidity. This was great, I wish I had more.

    June 25, 2019 - Hugh’s bottle. Sea water nose (marine), plus some funk which blows off, eventually quite fresh, too simple, no yeast. Confirms for me that strangely 1988 was unsuccessful at Dom Pérignon.

    May 18, 2019 - The color of apple juice, with aromas of sweet salty caramel. The same is reflected on the palate. Fine bubbles and good ullage though out of a 750ml bottle.

    Acidity still intact and still some life left for this particular bottle although I think I would've preferred it a bit younger.

    Officially the oldest wine I've had and my first birth wine as well.

    SWC 06 is still the best Champagne I've had so far, I guess I'm impressed this has held up this well.

    January 1, 2019 - Drinkable, yet clearly past prime with oxidative nutty sweet sour citrus element
