    August 5, 2020 - Another bottle of this.Very pale colour.Started off with a very mineral and lime driven nose.On the palate,oyster shells,crisp lemon and lemon peel with bracing acidity and chalky minerality.But much less energy,intensity and depth than a year ago.I would even say a little bit disappointing compared to my last bottle.A production of around five to six million bottles.It's hard to imagine that every single batch could be identical.

    August 3, 2020 - A brilliant, young Dom Perignon. Lots of energy on the palate with the signature toasty/yeasty notes that I love. Balance is on point and the depth of the palate is noticeable. Should be fun to watch this mature over time.

    August 3, 2020 - Very pale yellow. Fine bead with lemon sherbet and bread dough on the nose. Light and fresh on the palate with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a pin point prickly mousse that seems to fill every corner of the palate. So clean! The antithesis of that oxidative Bolly style that I just can't bear. As a tete de cuvee, not bad value either at £129 per bottle on the table. Excellent

    August 2, 2020 - Rich, smooth, elegant. Not particularly bright. More brioche than citrus. Fine bubbles. Smooth finish. From memory.

    July 29, 2020 - 5 hr in bottle decant with a stopper. Upon opening this was not showing much. But 5 hrs later, this was definitely strutting its stuff whilse served at the right temperature — around 50 degrees F. On the nose it smells like canned tuna to me — i also noticed this with ‘06 — but the palate is fine-boned style and is not funky at all. Lemon, fresh bartlett pear, fine minerality and fine mousse. Much different style from cristal 08 which is the common comparison here. My preference is w 08 cristal, but they are different styles. I see this as more of an appertif, party champagne while the cristal with its ripping acidity and minerality begs for food at this stage.
