    April 20, 2019 - Viner i Bodø-påske; 4/18/2019-4/21/2019 (Bodø): Complex fruit picture of red apple skin, physalis and stone bramble. Crisp malic acid (or at least it feels that way with no dosage) with a nice balanced though of oak and autolysis.

    April 13, 2019 - In reference to my previous note from a year ago on this wine, I can certainly tell ya'll that decanting this Champagne does absolute wonders in enabling it to fan-out its full flavor profile and shed some of those pithy, more linear notes that pop up on the initial pull. This bottle was decanted and left in the refrigerator for a total of three hours. This was the PERFECT service, with much of the vinous complexities this wine has to offer showing up to the party in a deliberate but still fun and flavorful approach from front to back. The grip and acid stayed in perfect step with the core flavors throughout consumption.

    Specific notes of yellow citrus, yellow pear skin, red apple pulp, black cherry and white raspberry water, limestone, concrete, toasted almond, and some tree bark. Beautifully balanced and weighted, with a surprising mid-palate expansion that offers both verve and flavor. Finishes focused and concise, as well as delectable and succulent.

    Certainly a Champagne that can age, but drinking amazingly well now with the proper preparation and service. The best showing yet of this wine for me. 94-95+ points, with even more potential upside in 3-5+ years.

    March 18, 2019 - Cederic Bouchard tasting with add-ons. (LystPå resturant Bodø): Anonymous nose. High on acid. Salty minerals. Hints of yellow apple peel, and light citrus. Added air softener it. Gets rounder and more elegant.

    March 13, 2019 - Well, this was outrageously good. So good as to make me wonder: could this get any better? I wish I had more and would not be afraid to find out, but it's so fresh and vibrant now that I just love it as-is.

    I love this wine's consistency - as far as I can tell, it drinks well at all points of its lifecycle, and there are no vintage duds. It's tough for me to spend ~$80 on a bottle of wine, but if it's super consistent and this good, then I'm in.

    Also worth noting - this is the first time I've gotten the whole "champagne that drinks like red wine thing." For some reason, this time around even the nose comes across as having heavier elements of a red wine. It's certainly not tannic, but there's a grippy-ness that reminds me of red wine. I've heard these can benefit from a decant, and I'd love to try that next time.

    March 3, 2019 - Fantastic as usual, and disappeared way too fast. Great nose with lemon, melon, citrus...nice aromatics. On the palate, the bubbles carry the flavors well..Excellent acidity and a touch of tart cranberry, with more citrus...even still, maybe slightly richer than my last btl. Yum!
