    January 22, 2022 - This is large scaled with big mouthfeel and a piercing lemony acidity. Subtle nutty note and big yellow fruit. Impressive in a slightly domineering way

    January 20, 2022 - Marsipan, sitrus, trøffel, salt, røyk. Fantastisk syre og konsentrasjon. Kaffe og sitron i herlig, lang utgang.

    January 11, 2022 - Another Great nv champagne. Need more time to mature
    Initial palate of citrous and acid but opens up to more bready taste. Green apple and pear

    Still young but great wine

    January 8, 2022 - PNP. Crisp nose of apricots, apple and citrus with a yeasty character. The palate is lively and energetic, almost too shrill and acidic with a disjointed texture. Needs time.

    December 31, 2021 - Fine bubbles, quick acidity on first taste, years to go on this wine. Lovely pear and apple notes with hints of toasted cracker. Smooth and supple a pleasure now and in years to come.
