    June 22, 2019 - Tons of notable age on this one. Color is a dark gold. It has lost some bubbles. Nose has a lot of carmel - one drinker in the group said butterscotch. Thick mouthfeel with flavors of roasted nut, honey and a touch of dried apple. I am not convinced this bottle could go much longer. Half the group liked it and half thought it was too old for their sparkling wine preference.

    December 3, 2017 - Very interesting. The oldest sparkling wine we've had to date. More of an amber color in the glass, powerful somewhat funky nose. Nutty, caramel, a little funk but still some citrus lurking underneath. Not many bubbles after it hits your glass but still a lot of mouth watering acidity too it. Not sure I loved every aspect of it but super interesting for sure.

    December 2, 2016 - Tasted side by side with 1995 Dom Perignon. Ummmmm, it easily held it's own. That's for sure. Delicious bottle. Everything you want in an aged sparking wine.
