    February 24, 2019 - Very elegant as always, energetic and with a lovely balance. Not a flamboyant champagne , has restraint but also has the depth and balance . Its a shame they dnt give nay disgorgement dates as we would have liked to see any possible evolution but still for this level of wine we forgive them the oversight. 92-92

    January 1, 2019 - Light lemon color, tiny bubbles
    Some citrus zest, chalky, faint Fuji apple
    Bone dry, aggressive, steely, tense, some apple hints, lots of mousse
    Medium finish. Some lemon peel.

    This is an outstanding Champagne. I am absolutely loving it. Super approachable now and will no doubt age nicely. Decent price point. Worth buying a case for sure. Get some!

    December 31, 2018 - NYEve with Steve & Lucie (Knickerbocker): Opened at our place before going out to dinner. Allowed to slo-ox for 15 minutes. Any loss of effervescence was imperceptible - given that a bottle of Champagne starts with about 50 million bubbles. A fine and creamy mousse showed throughout the 45 minutes of consumption. The slo-ox seemed to release more aromatics, including baked apple and a hint of honey. These followed on the mouth filling palate, along with a good dose of white fruits, but only a light presence of brioche/toast (to our liking), and a nicely balanced acidity. Dry, but may appear a bit less so due to its fruitiness.
    Quite a few TNs mention that the wine seems reduced upon opening. I suggest a 15 minute slo-ox to allow the wine to open and show its stuff.
    The L-P website says that this wine is a blend of 3 vintages, and is 100% from 11 Grand Cru plots of Chard and PN. However, there is no specific info on the bottle, or the website, about the specific vintages, the blend, or the disgorgement date. We agree with many other TNs that this info should be on the bottle.
