February 14, 2020 - Nice fruit, great acidity, that extra body that always says Veuve to me. Always a great wine.
February 10, 2020 - Very red fruit driven with good richness and bright energy. Very tasty start, seemingly a but simple, but this picks up weight as it goes forward.
February 1, 2020 - Medium salmon pink with tiny bubbles. Quite a bit of strawberries on the nose with some melon, and cherries. Medium acidity (5.5/10) with a medium plus body. A bit of yeast on the palate with tons of strawberries. Medium plus length finish. Drink till 2022.
January 28, 2020 - Very pale pink colour
Ripe red fruit on the nose
Lean and crunchy on the palate, more red fruit, some length and toastiness but a bit sweet on the finish.
January 16, 2020 - Flickinger Customer Appreciation Tasting (Casino Club - Chicago IL): Walk around tasting. Current release, from magnum. Red berry and cherry throughout with good enough concentration, better textures and balance. A good release for this wine.
January 16, 2020 - Flickinger Customer Appreciation Tasting (Casino Club): Current release from Magnum. Attractive, fruit forward nose with plenty of ripe red berries. Palate is a bit sweet and simplistic. Good but that's all. 87-88
January 7, 2020 - Nice Champagne, with rich note of pinot, which I love. Can't go wrong with this one.
January 1, 2020 - New Years Day: Vrai Champagne, Fourth Annual Edition (Brad & Marcia's Place, St. Paul, MN): Light pink color. Small pour. Can't remember the last time I had this. Very good, red fruits, strawberry, ripe, light and delicate style, just a little sweetness. Tasty. I preferred the '08 vintage rose, but others thought this was better.
January 1, 2020 - Not as good as some othe Veuve Rose bottles I have had but still a good champers.
December 31, 2019 - Being on the beach watching the sunset seems to cancel out the plastic cup effect. Nice strawberry flavors and perfect for the occasion.
