    April 12, 2020 - I think this is my favourite for drinking now of the current or nearly current Breaky Bottom Cuvees. Lovely, fresh, lively, clean and long. A delight.

    February 5, 2016 - 100% Seyval Blanc. Aromas of zesty, fresh and crisp green apples. Palate is muscular with tiny bubbles dancing from side-to-side with lemon, apple and toasted-almonds. Comes across as barely legal at the moment, but with more than sufficient body to lay-down for more than a quite a few years. We are not about ready to walk away from our Frog Blanc de Blancs, but we are keen to continue sipping this luvly bubbly. Very, very well-done. The wine maker is Peter Hall, who apparently is the "master of Seyval Blanc". According to The Wine Pantry website (http://www.winepantry.co.uk/Breaky-Bottom-Cuvee-Cuvee-Koizumi-Yakumo-10/), this bubble is named after Peter's great-great-uncle the writer Lafcadio Heran, who is also known as Koizumo Yakumo, commemorating his work and marking his death 110 years ago. How do you go from Koizumi Yakumo to Lafcadio Heran to Peter Hall? Have a quick read at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lafcadio_Hearn. A touch too expensive, but we think worthy if not for anything than the change of pace...and recognition of what most people said was impossible...the English make excellent wine!
