    October 19, 2019 - Glowing yellow-green color with microscopic bubbles. Yeasty bread with mild lemon on the nose. Angel cake, lemon curd, toast points, almonds, and a confectionary note with a solid mineral and citrus core. Absolutely delicious, and probably the best champagne I’ve ever had.

    October 16, 2019 - This one was right down the middle. Not overly oxidative or reductive, this champagne flirts the line. This opens with some sharper acidity, has more of a lemon rind half sweet/half tart note right on the front. Then starts to gain an herbal kind of character, and finishes with brioche, liqueur infused bread pudding, and a roasted nut character. Bubbles neither seemed microscopic or too large on the tongue. Excellent rounded character. In the grand scheme of things, I think this one is a baby and will hold another 3 decades. I am quite certain that the other bottle I have probably won't see the light of 2021..... You can drink these now as they IMO are quite delightful at present. But if I had willpower and a couple of cases of this, I'd try to let these sit.

    September 30, 2019 - 性价比非常高,气泡极其丰富,充沛的果味和花香,宽广的酸度又柔顺。可能继续陈年一段时间会更好,但又有什么关系呢,现在已经非常好喝。考虑到它的价格,我稍微给高了点分数

    September 29, 2019 - (Magnum) So lovely. Fruity, not at all astrigent but citric in a savoury way. Very (too) easy to drink even without food.

    September 14, 2019 - this has always been a favorite of mine and it did not disappoint
    taittinger always has perfect bubbles for me
    some yeast on the nose that reminds me of how Sam's stores used to smell [this was lost when Binny's took over]
    some lemon along with softer fruit and creamy toasted brioche on the palate
    Sigh
