    June 12, 2019 - Wine Group Dinner #169, Urbane Restaurant. This is a fine albeit very young Dom with a very fine mouse and pale colour and a nose of lemon, apple, pear, brioche and limestone. The palate is quite dense and reserved with plenty of matiere and grip balanced by an expanding gossamer web of flavour and minerals on the back palate that is very refined. The dosage seemed a little prominent to me but it perhaps balances the razor sharp acidity of the finish.

    June 9, 2019 - Champagne tasting. No scores but ranked from best to worst.
    1. 2000 Dom Perignon P2 - blind. classic big house prestige cuvee style. High class, but a bit generic - didnt guess Dom P.
    2. Selosse Initial (deg09) - another beautiful initial, this time with almost 10 years post-deg aging which it carries effortlessly. However, some thinning in flavour. Maybe not one to save much longer.
    3. 2004 Cristal - still very youthful, but has substance.
    4. 2008 Dom Perignon - surprisingly accessible already!
    4. 1998 Veuve Clicquot Grande Dame - deliciously mature, but on the downslope - DRINK NOW
    2008 Veuve Clicquot Grande Dame - very young, but accessible to some degree.
    7. 2006 Taittinger Comtes - much too young, should be stored.
    7. 2011 Pierre Peters Chetillons - young and rather anonymous
    9. Krug Grande Cuvee (deg2003) - poorly stored
    10. Ulysse Collin Rose (12 base. 18deg) - very young and complete lack of complexity.
    11. 2009 Pierre Paillard Les Mottelletes - easy drinking and good value, but a tad too sweet.
    12. Grande Siecle (fra start 2000'er) - Cork tainted

    June 8, 2019 - Five winos excellent adventure , mostly in Burgundy; 6/7/2019-6/15/2019 (Beaune, France): Typically, it takes twenty years after the vintage for Dom Perignon to shine. The 08 is an exception. Perfectly harmonious nose displaying fresh white fruit, pear, lemon, honeysuckle, cool mountain stream and limestone. Perfectly harmonious palate, very finely layered pure white fruit, incredibly fine abundant mousse, elegant, harmonious and energetic, bright acidity, strong limestone mineral and a seamless long white fruit and mineral driven finish. The 08 has to be the best young Dom Perignon of my life, epitome of elegance and refinement.

    June 6, 2019 - Served at Arrow & Branch tasting at Rittenhouse Hotel. Super refined and just delicious. Wonderful note of sweet bread - like the flake off croissant

    June 5, 2019 - 2008 Champagne evening (Medlar (London)): Clearly the best wine in this flight and besting the Winston Churchill pretty much unanimously for the table. Lots going on, great deep nose, flinty, mineral powder, sweetness of high quality ripe fruit. This is going to be tremendous Dom in time surely. Glad to have a few cases. This was the Legacy edition btw (which was disgorged a few weeks earlier than the regular label).
