    January 7, 2020 - 2017 White Burgundy Dinner (Brasserie Margeaux - Chicago IL): Lots of lemon and green apple with good+ weight and length, but finishing with a finish I found slightly too tart, nearly bitter. Then much better with food. Recently purchased, so most likely current release.

    January 1, 2020 - New Years Day: Vrai Champagne, Fourth Annual Edition (Brad & Marcia's Place, St. Paul, MN): Had this a week ago too, maybe a bit better bottle. Only had a small taste though and solid as usual. 90pts.

    December 31, 2019 - Yeasty, bready but with a vibrant fruit and acid profile. Needs food.

    December 31, 2019 - Last wine of the night for midnight toast, so not much scrutiny. Elevated acidity and could definitely age. Good value.

    December 25, 2019 - Light gold color. Drank a couple glasses over 2 hours. Very bold nose, sea air, apple blossoms, golden apples, Meyer lemon, yeast. The palate shows excellent concentration, there's a lot of depth, green apples, pear, passionfruit panna cotta, apple peel and chalk. Nice tingly minerality and acidity.
