    October 20, 2017 - 2017 New York Wine Experience Trip; 10/16/2017-10/25/2017 (New York City, NY): This golden elixer is a blend of 67% Pinot Noir and 33% Chardonnay. It retains a respectable tiny bead considering its age, and serves up and intense olfactory experience. Dried fruits, roasted almonds, honeysuckle, toast and mineral aromas are followed by similar flavors on a vibrant palate. There is more tactile activity on the tongue than would be anticipated based upon the visible bubble activity. The back end seems to go on and on. This bottle (ex-château) was amazingly youthful and delicious. Comparably cellared bottles should provide pleasure for at least another five years. Drink now-2022.

    January 28, 2017 - Bärnstensfärgad, ingen vidare mousse

    Sherrytoner, nötig och knäckig, väldigt mycket brända toner

    Smörig och rund, fyllig, bra längd, även lite brända toner i munnen. Bra längd och syran finns där fortfarande, trots nästan 40 år.

    Först lite fadd i smaken men det försvann sen. Pigg och bra smak. Behövde lite luft för att komma igång.

    April 19, 2016 - Darker color, good nose, hint of bubbles, drinking past its prime now but enjoyable on the palate and finish. Drink up.

    April 19, 2016 - Veuve Clicquot 1979/1989 (Chez Schmidt - Chicago IL): Lots of mushroom and earth, faint traces of fruit or textural energy. Lots of toast and yeast. Others enjoyed this more than I did today. Not even close to another bottle (from same case?) tasted two years ago.
