    October 29, 2021 - Opened to celebrate the end of a long couple of weeks.

    The fifth of the case and I wish I had another as these seem to be improving! Deep golden colour and extraordinary nose with so much going on. Slight sherry note, marzipan, yeast and tropical fruits. Lovely little bubbles and long length. Genuinely outstanding wine.

    April 24, 2021 - Pink color. This had an overtly oxidative touch with mushrooms, nuts, orange rind and bruised apples. Still very drinkable esp. for those who like a bit of oxidation in their older Champagne. Is see a lot of mentioning of oxidation in other tasting notes so I guess this was not bottle variation. Clearly past peak, drink up. The 1999 next to it was pristine and fresh.

    November 7, 2020 - Drunk to celebrate the election result.

    Seven years on from my first bottle and only a couple left from the 6-pack now. Looking back at that note, I still think it holds true, although interestingly, less oxidisation or mushrooms for this bottle which was from a different purchase.

    Wonderful length, still small beads forming a lovely, if understated mousse. Lots of nuts this time around. Magnificent.
