    December 29, 2015 - Lime green color. Ripe, autolytic and positively rich nose with toasty aromas of toffee, brioche and cookie dough, some cherry-driven red fruit and juicy white fruits. Quite crisp, medium-bodied and somewhat dark-toned on the palate with rich yet sufficiently bright flavors of citrus fruits, succulent yellow fruits, toasty autolysis, apricot skin, some cookie dough and a hint of cherry-driven red fruit. Balanced high acidity. Medium-long, crisp and quite mineral finish with flavors of lemony citrus fruits, sweeter yellow fruits, some chalky bitterness, a little bit of toasted bread and a hint of apple skin.

    A nice, balanced and all in all well-made NV Champagne. Due to its rather dark-toned and muscular character I'd venture a guess that this is a quite Pinot-driven bubbly. Although weighty, the wine doesn't feel that big but instead sufficiently structured, focused and linear. Not the most complex effort, but still very pleasant and tasty stuff. Solid value at 35,90€.

    December 27, 2015 - Medium yellow. Developed nose with brioche, burnt cookie and candied citrus in the background. Light mid palate, more citrus that brioche, wit low acidity and short finish. Just ok.

    January 1, 2015 - Nothing wrong with it , but the most memorable part will be how there was nothing memorable about it. Very light and quick finishing on the palate. I must say I was expecting more.
