    December 6, 2019 - Dinner at Auburn LA (Auburn Restaurant, Los Angeles): Very yummy. Not oxidative in style at all, which is what I was expecting based on comparison to the seduction, which I've had a few times. Lovely, fruit forward, good density, nice mousse: citrus, sweet apple, a touch of richness...

    July 1, 2019 - Subtle, complex, and festive, this was better than the bottle of Dom Ruinart we had along with it.

    August 3, 2018 - Open and almost rotund, the precision is still evident and the fine beam of bubbly grabs you. Marshmallow, almond cookie, white raisin and anise. Civilized, yet you want to gulp. There is a pleasing rush. Drink now.

    June 25, 2018 - Bought at auction a couple of years ago. Jeroboam (Double magnum). Cork did not pop up by itself. Cracked and remainder pulled up using a regular screw pull. Yellowish showing discrete mousse. Partly oxidized but acceptable.
    Probably had quite some years in bottle after disgorging.
