    October 17, 2020 - degorgerad april 2017, on lees since 2011
    Känns lite trött, fin mousse men inte så mycket karaktär. En rätt slätstruken Champagne

    October 15, 2020 - Laid in chalk cellars in 2015, disgorged in 2019.

    Far, far too young to be enjoyed-- no surprise there. This has a generous nose of succulent orchard fruits, fresh honey, brioche, French vanilla, and toffee. Unfortunately, the palate completely underwhelms with its one-dimensional profile. It's rich, ripe, and has a bitter finish. Definitely drinks like an entry level Champagne.

    October 4, 2020 - DG 2016. Beautifully mature and rich, bready, hint of nuts, but still some lemon freshness. One of my very favourite NVs - best to buy a few years ahead and cellar.

    (NV Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve) Disgorged 2008. This is just lovely, and surpasses my expectations which were low, as I did not rate the last bottle very highly at all. White orchard fruits on the nose, with citrus tones and a fine, subtle, nutty nuance. Lightly honeyed and more harmonious than I hoped. Bright, a good mousse, but supple, with a fleshy weight. Clean, with citrus pith, together with wisps of grey smoke and other slightly reductive suggestions. This is just delicious.

    (NV Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve) Disgorged 2008, but no mis en cave information here. A pale straw hue, and a fine bead. The nose is certainly very developed and interesting, very vinous, with stretched out toffee and brazil nuts, with a hint of autumnal fruits, all warm and golden. The palate shows a similarly warm and rounded character, fleshy and rather plump, with a mouthfeel that tends to overface the acidity and mousse a little. I find this a little surprising, as I would think this wine would be based on the 2004 vintage from the disgorgement date, and thus thought it would be little firmer. Towards the end quite open, a touch loose-knit, but with some slightly bitter grip at the finish. This might come together with time.
