    July 12, 2019 - Fantastic example of champagne. Just delicious. Good acidity, with some citrus and yeast. Nice mouth feel. Not too complicated but really good. Disgorged September 16

    July 2, 2019 - Superb bottle. This was really singing with all elements well integrated. Toward the toasty, brioche side. Plenty of fruit and complexity with enough acid. Perfect pairing with roast chicken.

    June 28, 2019 - This is an OK NV champagne.

    The mousse dissipates quickly, and the bubbles are large.

    The nose is slightly yeasty, and that follows through to the palate which is quite dry and the dominant Pinot Meunier present a slightly different profile from typical blends: yeasty, toasty, dry, and a little acidic. For me this is a food wine - the acidity is a bit strong for an aperitif.

    It's not my favourite NV champagne by a long way, but it does the job. Reasonable QPR at US$35.

    June 1, 2019 - Yeasty and lithe but complex on the palate. Excellent with pork chops. A 375 ml bottle.

    May 30, 2019 - Really nice. Lean, crisp, good acidity. Seems to be low dosage. Enjoyed this a lot. Effortless pairing with multiple kinds of sushi. Will be buying a lot more of this in the future.

    (NV L. Aubry Brut) ($45.00) Have you noticed how good this wine has gotten the last few years? I’ve been drinking bottles at home, and my lips be smackin’. For all their “exotic” wines, this is right down the middle, though far more buzzy and crisp than commercial
    Champagne-like-substances. This one’s 60% ’08 and 40% last year’s blend; 50%PM/25%CH/25%PN, disgorged 2/11, and true to its modern form, incisive and crackery, rye rusks and oysters – which in fact this wine partners quite well!
