    December 26, 2020 - This was fine. It was quite firm, edgy. With a strong sense of mineral and a 2008-ish firm and grumpy mood. Like it plenty didn’t love it. Maybe others will be better.

    November 30, 2020 - Still young, but the lime-like acidity is just integrated enough that it’s still a pleasure to drink. Some Krug-y notes of jellied fruit and hazelnuts. Richer and just as complex on day 2. This has great upside and could easily add 2-3 points after more time down. Can be drunk now, but should be very interesting come 2023/2024.

    November 13, 2020 - This is an elegant and beautiful champagne in its youth. Quite balanced acidity but will probably be even better in two-three years.

    Will be really fun to try this after year 2025

    November 5, 2020 - Lots of intensity, extract, acid, chalk, Impressive. But the extract, acid, and dosage aren't fully integrated and harmonious right now. Needs time to come together?
