    May 25, 2019 - Pristine, joyful, life-affirming wine. So pure, it was almost indecent, the haste with which we despatched it..

    May 19, 2019 - It's like flipping a coin, will Comtes show up or something uninspiring? From a magnum so I'm really rooting for this bottle. Plus it's the opening act for a huge champagne line up. Very fine bubbles. Sulphur and flint nose. Light oak, rich yellow fruit and soft mouthfeel. Lemon lime finish but not tart, slightly sweet. Good bottle

    May 18, 2019 - Paultacular Champagne Tasting (At Paul's Place): From magnum, thank you Brig for adding this to Paul's event. Toasty aroma, with lemony citrus and a custard/richer palate. This bottle shows very little of the 7-Up soda quality I have had in other bottles. Good balance and showing very well.
