    November 26, 2019 - Nice sharp nose of brioche and almonds. On the palate, comes across clean with medium intensity. Tons of brioche, Rice Krispy Treat, chalk, and dried white carbs. Pretty interesting. Another sip, I get lemon notes with more of that crunchy white carb note. Never had that note in my Champagne before.

    Wish the wine was fuller and richer, but at $20 for a half bottle, it’s not terrible. For my preferences, I wouldn’t seek it out again. Too simple.

    November 7, 2019 - Charleston V - the wooden anniversary; 11/6/2019-11/10/2019 (Charleston, SC (various locations)): In the reasonably priced/this could be house bubbles kindof category this is one of my favorites. It's lean and zippy and apple and just a slight background of sweet toast. I find it very enjoyable and one of the best values in champagne.

    October 18, 2019 - No disgorgement date available. Bright straw color with a fine and persistent bead of bubbles. Modest nose, appropriately citrus and biscuit. Very good energy and tension on the palate - nothing flabby here. Wonderful balance with nothing distracting or out of place. Long and clean finish. Very nice for the price.
    4+11+17+8= 90

    August 4, 2019 - Glad I have 5 coming, again, this Fall. Wish I had 5 in the cellar right now! This and the basic Vilmart Brut Reserve are unbeatable for the buck. Tonight with KFC chicken on the deck. Perfect!

    July 21, 2019 - After 2 days:
    Good and round, maybe a hint to sweet and first to much wine-taste, more like a Franciacorta.

    Hint: open the bottle and let it stay in fridge for a while, with a special champagne bottle stopper. A bit of air helps the wine.

    Bought at Frischeparadies in Zürich for a reasonable price.
