    November 13, 2022 - No poker night (Jason and Mariellen's house): As good as this was, it wasn't as expressive as I would have hoped. Fresh dough, overall light and fresh. It gained some depth with about 1.5 hours of air.

    November 12, 2022 - Almond and yeast notes, with hints of ginger on the finish. This was bright and fresh compared to a 2006 Pol Roger consumed immediately prior, which showed deeper flavors and more richness. Different styles, both very good. My immediate reaction was that the B-S could use a little more time to develop some more depth.

    November 12, 2022 - Wine weekend in the Twin Cities; 11/10/2022-11/12/2022 (Where the frosty air is refreshing.. kind of): N: The volume seems a bit turned down but there are subtle minerals, clean white crisp fruits and clean river water.

    P: Heavier yellow fruits, with some moderate yeastiness, prickly, bright and crisp minerals with some savoriness.

    November 12, 2022 - Sorry, Not Sorry! No Poker on Poker Night! (Jason's House): This Champagne was very tasty and more intense than the 2006 Pol Rogers, but with a similar profile, i.e., Brioche/yeast, tart green apple and citrus with lively acid and lots of sea shell/saline minerality. A nice Champagne to sip on, and great addition to the tasting. Nice mousse too, and the lift and fruit had you coming back for another sip! A solid 94. No hurry on drinking these!

    October 13, 2022 - Medium yellow, moderate bead. Full bodied, toasty. Excellent mix of ginger, bitter citrus, and soil. Still fresh with fine core of acidity.
