    January 15, 2022 - crystal clear golden color; fragrant notes of peach pit, warm sourdough, lemon curd, settled-in ripe yellow fruits beautifully mixed with yeasty components; nice blast of flavor in the attack, sappy mid-palate, clean and long finish. fine bubble s still, in amazing pristine shape for nearly 30 years! Stunningly good with a tangy Cypress Grove goat cheese, clashed with a French triple cream. S&L w/cioppino

    (Charles Heidsieck Blanc De Millenaire) COLOR-golden; NOSE (w/ no decant)-a quick blast of marzipan; a cinnamon toast crunch cereal aspect; some dried fruits; PALATE (w/ no decant)-sliced fresh golden apples dominate; a chalk dust minerality; NOSE (w/ 60' decant)-much more aromatic; more caramel & brown sugar components; PALATE (w/ 60' decant)-the bubbles are considerably softer; substantially more rounded and integrated; baked apple pie w/ caramel and brown sugar; NOSE (w/ 90' decant)-even more pronounced, but the difference from no decant to 60 minute decant was more pronounced; PALATE (w/ 90' decant)-there are clearly still bubbles; apples and bread like before, but one thing I'm picking up for the first time is a substantial lemon peel component; WS-95; GV-No Score

    (CHARLES HEIDSIECK BLANC DE MILLENAIRE) #3; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-beautiful golden; NOSE-tighter, little grapefruit, dried toast, little hazelnut; TASTE-nice sour pear coming through, but it completely disappears ("Caspar Syndrome"), a lack of finish, shocking for such a good producer; WS-95; GV-88
