    September 12, 2022 - Elegant classic brut champagne. Light golden in color. Aromas of baked goods and fresh apples. On the palate, flavor notes accurately mirror aromas with nice acidity. Excellent effervescence with smooth finish.

    August 28, 2022 - Yeasty, brioche-y nose, with a palate of almond, spice, and general oxidized nuttiness, with high acid that's balanced by a savory, long, almondy finish.

    We're not really sparkling wine fans overall, and certainly not qualified to evaluate Champagne, but we get why this one is respected. The finish really made it especially enjoyable for us.

  • El_Dougo Does not like this wine: 86 points

    August 21, 2022 - First time tasting this champagne since I began taking wine (and champagne seriously). I was disappointed in how one-dimensional I found it. Nose was simplistic, and palate gave off just basic citrus and little of the toastiness that one might hope for. Acid, however, was quite high.
    If looking for a basic house champagne I personally would suggest the brut Roederer ahead of Veuve. You might even save yourself some money in the process. Happy for any thoughts on this.

    August 11, 2022 - Engagement dinner with Andrew & Kala.....this was one of the better bottles of this in recent memory. Fresh, citrus, mild bisquit notes, effervescent. Nice bubbles.....enjoyed by all!
