    July 12, 2021 - Blinded the group. Most thought this was high end aged Champagne. 95 was guessed by 2 people. Brioche, lemon, hints of oxidation (leading to Selosse comparisons), bread and some coffee notes. Good acid and structure backbone. Really enjoyable. Disgorged in 16

    February 1, 2021 - brioche, apple pie, toasted hazelnut, lemon, crushed rock, saline, and mango

    still solid, youthful, although not worth the premium anymore.

    December 31, 2020 - Opened for CT Zoom, then finished for NYE. Crisp and apply with underlying richness. High note to end the year that was 2020.

    December 14, 2020 - Medium to dark golden yellow. Complex nose of brioche, lemon curd, and some white floral notes. Quite a bit of grippy acidity (7/10) throughout the palate with a medium to medium plus body. Well rounded flavors of green apples, lemon zest, straw and crushed gravel. Long finish. Drink till 2035.

    September 5, 2020 - Sea mist with lemon. A bit of apple at the beginning. Drank over 4 hours and the best was last.
