    January 17, 2022 - Fairly bright for a BdB and not particularly briochey. Medium-long finish, but slightly bitter at the end, which was disappointing. Overall a solid bottle but pricy for what it is.

    January 16, 2022 - More complexity than last few bottles of this consumed. Always clean and elegant. 92+

    January 9, 2022 - Crisp layers of grapefruit and hints of apple and white pear on the palate amidst the sparkling effervescence. Not too sweet. Nicely focused. Harmonious finish. Excellent. 375 ml bottle.
