    September 25, 2021 - 4th Saturday Brown Bagger (M&R's): Pale color with a short mousse. Apple, marshmallow and orchard fruit notes upon opening. With air, ginger and citrus elements emerge. Fine bead. Flavors of citrus, almond, dough and orchard fruit. Delicious and so easy to drink- it will be tough keeping my hands off of these.

    September 13, 2021 - First of many as a household favorite bubbles from our wedding year. Tight and acidic as expected, but overlaying a nice depth of fruit and long lingering finish. Enjoyable now but I look forward to the future.

    September 8, 2021 - Covolo's Champagne Campaign (Casa Covolo): High-toned lemon, honeyed biscuit with some faint mustiness on the nose. Creamy smooth on the palate, love the finish on this one, fine bubbles. My 2/6, the group's 3/6 (finished 1 point ahead of Krug MV grand cuvee 168)

    September 2, 2021 - Same bottle as RockNRoller. This was an interesting contrast to the '06 shared along side it. Much more tightly wound than the '06 it lacked the yeast component and was sharper more lemon-lime, sea shell and intense minerals. If you like your Champagne wound up this is the vintage for you but I agree with Kevin its best showing is yet to come.
