    April 30, 2019 - Best bottle (Restaurant Waldhorn, Kirchheim, Germany): Glass: Gabriel Standard
    Decent Champagne with a nice nose and a lovely mineral core. Good entry into this fantastic evening. Quite young, so no need to hurry. 91-92

    December 31, 2018 - Nice and complex champagne. Veryfresh and mineral. Has some age to it. Good complexity and decent finish.

    June 26, 2017 - A private dinner (Scharzhof, Wiltingen, Germany): Lovely depth on the nose, fresh nuts and lemon curd, smoky depth; lovely freshness, quite evolved flavours, gentle mousse, hint of green apple, good resonance and length.

    February 18, 2015 - Very fresh, still has a lot of life in it. Cork was compressed but still good amount of fizz left. Excellent mouthfeel. Just wanted a bit more oomph and some more tertiary characteristics.

    December 31, 2014 - Had this last night, New Year's Eve at Sopra. Visually, light glassine yellow. When first poured into white Burg stemware, a rather subdued nose, but in a while, expanded into yeasty and old bread aromas. On the palate, yeasty, broad spectrum somewhat oxidative flavours, consistent with age of the wine (16 years old), ripe Mirabelle pear, saline, bitter honey and with fine but gently beading bubbles. I liked this. This seems to be well into its drinking plateau but seems capable of continuing to be (hedonistically) pleasurable for @ 5 years plus.
