    February 18, 2020 - Fresh apple and lemon, just a hint of mature champagne nuttiness and brioche. Quite nice either on its own or with seafood.

    December 29, 2019 - Slightly darker but aged look, nutty, expressive, slight oxidation which led to a creamy palate feel and a long after taste.

    December 14, 2019 - Just a remarkable showing of this wine from magnum. Fresh, youthful with brightness and round, crisp bubbles. Ripe, red delicious apple, with warm brioche. This wine has much more development in store, particularly in the format I was fortunate enough to have enjoyed it in. I suspect 750s might be coming around, but mags are a good ten years from apogee, in my humble opinion.

    July 27, 2019 - Q3 - 2019 Tasting - Vintage Champagne - Pre-2000 (New York, NY): 13/14 wines tasted double blind. This had a very toasty nose. The palate was displaying quite a bit of toast and vanilla, but perhaps was lacking a bit more brightness to provide some more lift. 2 pennies voted by the group.

    July 27, 2019 - Q3 Wine Club | Pre-2000 Vintage Champagne (The Apt): Wine #13: Probably the most classically 'nice' and I wonder if we hadn't done this blind if this wouldn't have been most people's favorite. It is a great producer in a great year. I also wonder that coming on the heels of the '98 Corbon isn't a bit of a tough spot since that is a wine that is light and fresh and sweet and so there's a bit of readjusting the palate. The first time I had this I got a hint of sour, but I think that might have been location (I didn't get it the second time). This is still in the more apple style with a bit more of the caramel quality of age. Drinking fairly young for it's 28 years. Overall, enjoyable. (2 pennies)

    (Pol Roger Champagne Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill) Yeasty, lemon and vanilla nose; a rich body with refreshing acid, apple and citrus flavors and great structure, but is still rather tight and needs time
