    January 1, 2020 - Last bottle. Golden colored with fine bubbles. Yeast on nose. Definitely showing its age. Creamy mouthfeel with bright acidity and hints of dough, lemon, and mineral. The finish is not as long as previous bottles but that is expected. Drink up as this is nearing the end. Lovely champagne for the money.

    September 17, 2018 - I read my last note (which still applies). I strongly believe that those who give scores on Cellar Tracker that are "sub-standard" really don't get it and they should not be allowed to drink older champagne. My wife says I am being a complete jerk (my word, not hers, which was much stronger), but listen: it's not for everyone. Leave it for me. thedrunkencyclist.com

    August 17, 2018 - This was delicious. Nose of Fuji apple, almond paste, and slight yeast. With some air the aromas deepened with dough, caramel, and marzipan. Lovely golden color with decent bubbles left. These did dissipate as time passes but did not detrwxmct from drinking pleasure. Rich mouthfeel, almost creamy. Still vibrant and very good. Showed no signs of being over the hill. Served with mini crab cakes as an appetizer to a meal that included a 2001 Joseph Phelps Insignia and a 1986 Chateau Margaux.

    June 13, 2018 - This had a really strange nose or I would have scored it higher. Apple and a hint of almond, perhaps a touch of honey. Great mouse and long finish. Great QPR, except for the strange nose.

    October 23, 2017 - Reading through some of the tasting notes here on Cellar Tracker, I realize a rather poignant fact: some people should not be allowed to drink vintage champagne. If that sounds elitist, I apologize, but many clearly don’t get it. Older vintage champagne often loses some of its sparkle, it often starts to taste a bit oxidized, and yes, the fruit is faded, but those are precisely the elements that make older vintage champagnes so fantastic. This was a touch golden but nothing severe but the nose is serious: cooking brioche just before you take it out of the oven. Whoa. On the palate toasted croissant and lemon curd. Holy cow. I seem to say it all the time but THIS is why I hold on to vintage champagne. Whoa.
