    April 29, 2020 - The wine looks light gold colored. The legs are slow. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like almond and ripe apple.It smells more developed than it is. It tastes like ripe Amalfi-lemon, apple and honeydew. The body is medium. The wine has smooth texture with a little acid-sting. The wine finishes long. The wine has medium acidity.

    January 1, 2020 - Smooth and refined, palate cleansing Champagne, featuring a buttery nose of lemon, baked apple, and a touch of honey - tell-tale BdB characteristics right off the bat. Not too complex, medium-bodied, good concentration, and quite seamless, nothing out of place. A mix of citrus and nutty flavors flow across the palate to a long, suave, and expressive finish. The bubbles faded somewhat after a few minutes in the glass, so I'd say it's ready. It's quite pleasurable, but not worth the $85 price-tag (although my wife gave it a 95).

    December 8, 2019 - Medium golden yellow with lots of bubbles. Well rounded and rich nose with brioche, baked apples and a hint of citrus. Medium acidity (6/10) and medium bodied. Long finish with baked apples, minerality, and about a bit nutty. Drink till 2030.

    November 21, 2019 - Nutty and earthy aromas jump out of the glass, with lemon, lime, and brioche joined by a pronounced nuttiness on the palate. Laser acidity keeps this (still) fresh and lively.

    August 8, 2019 - Since I have not drank enough Champagne yet (maybe 10 bottles) to consider myself credible, I won’t say anything more than we both found this bottle quite enjoyable. On a 75 degree sunny summer day, it was a great pairing. Paid about $70.

    I had no issues with opening the bottle or any “erupting” as the previous person commented. I do always allow Champagne a bit of a “rest” after any transportation. It went from cellar to an ice bucket for 40 minutes, and definitely sustained a bead.
