    November 2, 2019 - Past its prime, a lot of maderized notes here. There was some fruit left but you really had to try hard to focus on them. Bummer.

    September 26, 2019 - Kuki'o Wine Trip 2019; 9/22/2019-9/28/2019 (Champagne & Bordeaux): Very round and open and losing its tension somewhat. Warm and inviting nose that has bruised apple, cinnamon, and beginning to develop light caramel too. More oxidative than you’d hope, sort of just hanging on. 92 - 93...

    September 8, 2019 - Opened with a soft sigh and provided moderate bubbles until the last sip.

    Medium golden color and a explosive nose of... everything! There are oxidative notes, fresh candied fruit, white chocolate, toffee. It goes on and on. Similar flavors along with some ginger as well. The last sips had a delicious sweet and sour note. Finish is long and lovely.

    June 15, 2019 - Champagne - 75 Top Vintage and NV Champagne; 9/1/2015-9/22/2019: Wonderful mature Champagne nose with candied apple & cinnamon, vanilla, (I guess that makes apple pie) flowers, ginger. Not too oxidative for the fact that this is 30 years old. The palate stays fresh with fine perlage.

    April 6, 2019 - From Magnum
    Nose is explosive...candied ginger, flowers, citrus, orange marmalade, coffee, chocolate, earth, Xmas spice, mushroom, biscuit, brioche and minerals
    Palate is dense but here is where you see the impact of the vintage....just a touch lighter than what you see from a top, top vintage.
    Finish is long...coffee, chocolate, candied ginger, minerals, orange zest, flowers, mushrooms, earth and brioche.
