Community Tasting Notes 7

  • JJYoyo Likes this wine: 93 points

    January 15, 2021 - Crisp with surprisingly profound scent of red apple, lemon, shortbread. Beautiful taste to match. Full bodied but with striking delineation. Reminded me of a NV Krug. Considering the vintage and the 1er cru grape sources, very noteworthy. Considering the price, stunning. Better than Egly Vignes de Vrigny, which (to me) is saying something.
    Score: 93. Relative to expectations: ++

    May 21, 2020 - Well-balanced light and darker fruits with a mustiness which is actually quite enjoyable! I love exploring the world of blanc de blancs Champagnes.

    April 28, 2020 - Straight up medium red apple in the nose and well, well balanced red and light colored fruits, just-enough minerality, and a wonderfully enjoyable semi-sweet finish! My first time with this champagne. I'll have more.

    February 9, 2020 - Back-to-back with 11 Dubois BdB. This is fuller, richer and yeastier. Drinking nicely and very good despite challenging vintage.

    October 6, 2018 - Best of the few bottles I’ve had. Deep, interesting and fresh tasting. Quite sophisticated as a result of excellent integration.
