    September 7, 2019 - Relativt ljus gyllene färg. Svag mousse. Mogen angenäm doft. Bra syra fortfarande. God att dricka nu. Ingen idé att vänta längre.

    March 23, 2015 - This has evolved beautifully and has reached a great point where the wine is round, full and complex. power but combined with finess it stays focused and intense. The balance is impressive and so is the texture and finish. The top bottle tonight besting a cedric bouchard and a 2002 Billiot so this is no slouch. I suspect this has the stuffing to continue going strong for many years. (note the label of the cuveee D is black not gold as pictured here on CT)

    February 2, 2013 - In the bar at Claridge's with Kate. Very lifted floral aromas, perfumed even, nutty, red fruit, still fresh; on the palate good weight and density, fully mature but 96-acidity keeps it going, candied fruit flavours; dry finish, good length.

    April 23, 2011 - Like most other 1996 vintage Champagnes I've had - this one shows remarkable freshness with crisp acidity and lively mousse. You would never guess that this wine is now 15 years old. Very charming style (I cannot imagine who wouldn't like this Champagne) with good elegance and structure.
