    January 8, 2019 - First time to drink a bottle contemplatively.....the first of a case bought directly from Nicolas. Fabulous verve and energy of mousse and bubbles, even though drank in a white wine glass. Very Blanc de Blancs signature on the nose but fresher and younger than previous bottles drank in restaurants....maybe a more recent cuvee. Lovely Chardonnay character on the palate...taut, lots of tension but carries its 5g minimal dosage very well without crossing the line into austerity. I suspect that a year of cellaring will do wonders. Meanwhile, I would drink this either with food or as an aperitif. Great stuff!

    November 13, 2018 - Large wine glass serving to accompany an appetiser of fresh warmed scallop carpaccio. No detailed notes but better even than when I enjoyed it two weeks ago at the same restaurant. This time it revealed itself as more white Burgundy and less as 'straightforward Champagne'....really enjoyable. 90+.

    November 2, 2018 - Large wine glass serving. Lemon-gold colour with a very powerful mousse and good persistent bead of sophisticated small bubbles. Typical pure youthful Chardonnay nose - fresh, lemony, lots of minerals. Palate is quite petillante mouthfeel, very mineral with a flinty character. Good finish. Quite reverberant. Hard to fault as an aperitif and then it blossomed with the sublime Uni and caviar appetiser.

    April 11, 2018 - A very nice Blanc de Blancs made by an old friend from Hong Kong. Nice to sip in Upper Modern Bistro, Hong Kong!

    March 31, 2018 - Large wine glass serving for my birthday dinner at ON Kitchen & Bar....it is the somellier's personal bottling. Lemony gold colour with a powerful mousse and good persistent bead. Lifted, Chardonnay nose, quite minerally. Palate is quite petillante mouthfeel, very mineral with a flinty character. Good finish. Quite reverberant. Enjoyable.
