    December 7, 2022 - I love it - as always! Perfect right now. Excellent balance between primary, secondary and also tertiary notes. Needs a little time in the glass before the full potential reveals. 94+ #kimswineacademy

    December 6, 2022 - Delightful nose, classic brioche and mushroom, lemon, kinda absurd but tennis ball?

    More of the same on the palate, especially the mushroom. Tiny amount of grass, hay, honey, apple.

    December 6, 2022 - Surprisingly mature. Citrus with tropical fruit. Well balanced, good length, round and full. Textbook champagne.

    December 3, 2022 - Very rich, not showing a lot on the nose besides some yeasty notes and pineapples, but on the palate, full of apple and pear. Refreshing acidity and great minerality. Very easy drinking.

    December 3, 2022 - fine mousse and outstanding complex nose that starts with lime zest and fans out with deeper yeasty aromas and faint tropical hints.

    The palate is jewel like in lucidity and dazzling. The is a benchmark for what a Champagne could be and was an eyeopener for friends who had not had this before.
