    June 21, 2019 - There is some variety to these bottles. This bottle was the best of the half dozen or so I have had so far. Beautiful maturing champagne which at the same time is both restrained and vibrant. Perfect balance, and if the rest of my bottles are of the same quality I will be very happy for the price I paid.

    May 30, 2019 - Except from one flawed, this was perhaps my weakest bottle out of the 15 I seem to have had. Very promising at first, and still lovely nose as well as that lovely honeyed note in the finish that just makes you long for another sip. But mid to late (palate) was lean and in the end the acidity got a bit overwhelming.

    February 23, 2019 - Samme opplevelse som tidligere flasker, utmerket match til Bellota-skinke.
