    January 22, 2023 - CNY Day 1 late night at home with neighbourhood friends. Drank in Gabriel Standart.
    Appearance is clear, pale intensity, lemon colour. Thin legs. Fast fading bubbles.
    Nose is clean, medium intensity, with aromas of pure minerals, chalk and stones, strong citrus lemon with good ripeness. Developing.
    On the palate, dry, lovely cutting high acidity, medium- alcohol (12.5%), medium body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of deep ripe and pure citrus lemon, limestone minerality, very slight oxidative tinge, and Mandarin orange and orange pulp with more air. Green apple and bruised yellow apple also. Medium to long vacillating finish.
    Very good quality. Lovely acidic cut and focused purity, and has most of what I want in a BdB. Excellent QPR.
    Disgorged Jan 2018. Dosage 2-4 g/l. 4014 bottles produced.

    March 19, 2022 - Light yellow. Nose is fresh and citric, feels like it has seen oak. Crisp palate with some bakery spices. A bit to light for a higher score. Medium finish.

    May 27, 2021 - Man, this is good bubbles for the money. Rich, ripe and intense with delicious flavors of yeasty bread, lemons and tart green apples. The finish is superbly complex with notes of minerals and brown spices. Just strikes the right cord and open and ready now.

    February 9, 2021 - Informal dinner, no detailed notes taken. This is a pleasantly soft and round Champagne with fine mousse and a well-integrated acidity. I like the slight bakery, brioche Pleasantly soft, slightly briochy, soft and round and fine mousse, very nice to drink and invinting, well integrated acidity but overall quite simple. Maybe a few years of ageing will add a bit complexity and it could climb a bit higher.

    Glass: Lehmann Grand Champagne
