    September 20, 2020 - Complete Vertical tasting of Clos du Mesnil en Magnum with Olivier Krug (Berens am Kai 1 star Restaurant): Complete Clos du Mesnil Magnum tasting, all bottles opened 3 Hours before, not blind, Magnum
    For me one of the best CdM's ever. From Magnum today too young but great too drink. The concentration and freshness is not from this world. For me comparable to the 88. 99+

    Guessed CdM 98, because the length was a bit Shorter than the 02's I had before. Great wine and concentration. Citrus, a bit honey and nuts, powerful and elegant likewise. Everything is at the right place. The finish is tremendous precise. More CdM than Krug. For the next 30 years., 97-98

    June 7, 2020 - A relaxed afternoon with two crazy guys (@Private location, Solingen): Glass: Zalto Universal
    Tasted blind. Incredibly fine nose with lots of yellow fruit, salt, herbs. Even minutes after the glass was emptied, the scent was still there.
    On the palate it is all about finesse and elegance. So extremely fine and delicate! Fine mousseux, delicate flavours. No blockbuster or sledge hammer. You have to focus, but then it really starts rocking. Such an elegant energy, precision and focus. So salty. And the length is unbelievable. Did I mention the perfect balance and harmony? Certainly, the best Champagne in my life so far. Great potential for the next decades. What a pleasure! 98+

    April 18, 2020 - Legends (MG): blind
    After drinking CdM 02 (opened a day before) and Clos d'Ambonnay 02 side by side our generous host opened a second CdM 02 to compare it with CdA in a fairer way. This bottle was perfect from the first zip. Both cdm outplayed narrowly the outshining CdA. The CdM 02 is a legend from the beginning and comparable with the 88. 100
