    November 24, 2021 - Full, lively, yeasty, off dry, and earthy. Seemingly Pinot-dominated blend. Very good.

    May 7, 2021 - Popped and poured after the Gonet-Medeville BdN 1er. This is also mostly Pinot Noir however with 20% Chardonnay. Comparatively, this pours a more pale color, again with a persistent mousse. Aromas of white flowers (specifically citrus blossom), white peach, and ever so lightly toasted brioche. On the palate, white peach, pink lady apple, lemon and minerals. Good acid. Long finish. Lovely texture. This came across as a noticeably more rich, refined, and elegant Champagne and it made a beautiful pairing with my selection of Mussels Dijonnaise. Disgorged August 21, 2018

    December 15, 2020 - Wimpish Christmas (La Trompette): Not sure of base vintage or disgorgement date, but tastes relatively mature. Floral nose - lavender? Nice, festive sense of richness, with dried fruit and some sharper orange pith-type notes. Lovely way to start the meal.

    October 26, 2020 - 2015 base. Great combination of rich fruit - citrus with a compelling hint of apricot confit - a really energetic freshness and savoury overtones. Felt notably dry but not excessively so. ***1/2++

    September 18, 2020 - One of my results from searching out Grower/Producer Champagnes. Light notes of brioche and pear on the nose. Opened up beautifully to a rich balance of acidity and creamy mouse. Tasted with Dom Perignon champagne glasses (not flutes).

    (NV Jean Lallement Brut) ($58.00) And this is the most crystalline, pointillist, filigree rendition of this cuvée ever. Maybe it’s the ’08. And there can’t possibly be a better NV in Champagne. The finish alone is a glow of mystery and beauty. 80% ’08, 20% ’07. 80PN/20CH, disgorged 11/10.

    (NV Jean Lallement Brut) This had wonderful yeasty flavors and lovely red fruits. Pure, with great depth and potent minerality. This is very suave. Kept gaining in richness and focus as the night went on.
