    April 25, 2019 - On the nose: Cognac, figs, "Burgundy", oak and vanilla.
    On the palate: Sherry, figs, red apple, vanilla, coffee.
    Long finish
    This Champagne hits you in the face and mouth. It is a very complexed and tough one. Some might say that it is too much. I say that it is an excellent Champagne.

    July 28, 2018 - This champagne hits you right on the nose with its greatness - very full bodied, slightly oxidative (but in a positive way, but this is something for lovers of the Bollinger style) roasted nuts, coffee, lime, nougat igniting a true firework on the palate. The depth and complexity of aromas is truly stunning and I have never seen this before from a champagne of „merely“ a decade of age, with the exception of Bollinger Vieilles Vignes. The ludicrous fact that I am actually not only qualitatively but also in absolute terms liken these two speak for themselves and express in just how high esteem I am holding this bottle. Truly stunning. How gutting that on my visit at Dethune 4 years ago this was the only bottle they had left as I would otherwise have taken more. Certainly best champagne this year for me. Wow! One note though, if I had a second bottle I would probably drink it sooner rather then later as I did not find it gaining much with air in the glass and it is just drinking so well now. BTW i can see the perfect score another member had given this. Jul 14 disgorgement
