    January 15, 2022 - The richness of Bollinger and the raciness of the 2008 should make for a great combination. Unfortunately the wine is still closed, some shy citrus notes and white flowers. Decanting helped a bit, the aromas were slightly more pronounce after 1h, but there was still not much generosity on the palate, the Bollinger lushness missing. May be this will develop more into a citrus led mature Chard with beady notes. We'll see. Drinks 94 today, with potential for one or two more points. Best after 2028.

    January 9, 2022 - Giallo paglierino, bolla fine, torrefazione, leggera sensazione lievitosa, frutta gialla, crema limone, bocca fresca, dritto, bolla fine, salino, finale leggermente ossidato dritto. Può evolvere, interessante ma non sublime.

    December 11, 2021 - Is this what I have to look forward to?? If so, I'm very happy about it. Showing amazing, with broad, smudged green apple notes, expansive, elegant with profound intensity and a little je ne sais quois. This is the bomb (still).

    October 27, 2021 - A firm structure for this 2008, Mushrooms and spices with lots of minerality. Whereas the 2012 vintage is not ready, still a lot of wood, this vintage appears to be a bit more mature, with the wood more integrated and delivering spices to the wine,

    October 16, 2021 - Another great bottle. Really well-balanced, both easy and incisive, ample (moreish, mouthwatering) acidity and a particularly overt aroma of sweetish dough. Maybe a touch over-dosed for my palate, but excellent overall.

    August 6, 2021 - A great anniversary wine. Fine bubbles. Wonderful aroma with apple, ginger, yeast, almond, apple, lemon curd, and apricot. Rich flavor, beautiful balance. Apple, dried ginger, yeast, almond, lemon, apricot. smooth lingering finish. Still young, good now , but plenty of promise to come.

    July 15, 2021 - Finally at my sisters birthday we opened a bottle of this beauty. And what a champagne it is, for me this is as close to perfection a champagne can come, I think it will get there with some more ageing. This champagne has so much energy and focus but at the same time such a spectrum of flavours. Im glad I have 11 bottles left and I will be buying a lot more and recommend everybody stacking up of this champagne before the price increases. The only negative about this champagne is that Bollinger didn't make enough of it.

    July 10, 2021 - Bastille Day dinner (R&D's): Excellent. Compared to the Bazin, this is rich and toasty, with apple, dried ginger, yeast and roasted almond notes. Fine bead. Flavors of apple, lemon and almond.
