    nailed it. This is perfection. Getting some minimal aging signs (roasted macadamia) to put it one dimension higher. Lime, honey, everything is in balance. I still had the taste two hours later. 100

    August 7, 2021 - Still to young to fully evaluate. Performing than the regular vintage cuvee, but yet unclear exactly what this will be when it grows up.

    Champagne heaven again. Perfect champagne for the next 2-3 decades. 99

    May 25, 2021 - Energetic, vibrant wine. Flavors are large scale. Crisp, high acidity palate. (05132)

    May 15, 2021 - Very ripe and very high acid in a way that reminds me of '96. Drank this over several hours and it initially came off as big and ripe and then it tightened up and the acid became much more prominent. Lots of raw material here but it doesn't fully come together in a harmonious way (right now at least). Seemed a little bit more Krug than CdM in that I didn't get the classic CdM minerality and precision and it was relatively big and broad. A very good champagne by reasonable standards but not a great CdM in my opinion, though maybe with time it'll come together. 92?
