    May 25, 2022 - Tasting with Laurent Champs of Vilmart (In Rilly la Montagne): Disgorged July 2013. Laurent, being the attentive and considerate soul that he is, remembered how much I am enamored with the 2006. And, of the heart that he moves from, he blinded me with this wine from the oenotheque. Man, this is such a great wine. Good color remains, delicious, still honeyed and rich yet in really perfect balance. My gut tells me this is entering the prime drinking window. I still have one bottle in the cellar, a wine I will cherish and open for the right occasion.

    November 23, 2021 - Semi-blind magnum tasting.

    July 10, 2021 - Blind by FMIII (Maison - Dana Point): Blind: guessed Pinot noir and thought it might be a Vilmart.

    The nose was muted on this but there was an unusual herb note, not in a bad way, just not something you'd associate with a champagne. The pallet also showed a touch of anise and the bubbles were super fine. The finish was strong Red Berry which led me to believe that it was predominantly Pinot noir. This is a fan favorite.

    July 8, 2021 - Blind Tasting with the guys (Maison Cafe in Dana Point, CA): Forgot to get the disgorgement info off the back label. This was the WOTN for everyone at the table. The freshness and structure on this wine fooled the table, as they guessed the wine to be far younger than it actually is. Tangerine and green apple form around a citrusy core, with the chalk coming through into the finish. One guy at the table called this 'elegant' and I would agree. There is a a great amount of complexity and depth in this wine, and with air the slate and lime really come through and shine. At 15 years old, this is fresh and lively, yet balanced with great further potential. What a beautiful bottle of CdC!

    April 3, 2021 - Quick notes, had with friends. Really nice champagne, not in the style of the grand marques for sure. The 80% chardonnay is clear, and it has great freshness and strong presence on palate. Surely more a wine than a traditional champagne, but damn good!
