    February 13, 2020 - Roumier Bonnes Mares vertical (67 Pall Mall London): Comtes is always a good idea and as mentioned many times my personal no brainer best value top champagne. Very good for a 2006. Typical Comtes. For me though the 06 continues to be a notch or two below 04 (but above 05 and probably on a par with 07). Should have a nice future for the next 20 years.

    February 4, 2020 - This is lovely with very fine bubbles and perfect balance. Lighter and finessed but with good building intensity on the complex finish. One of the best ‘06’s I’ve tasted. 93+ With Tom Black in Nashville.

    February 2, 2020 - Good Wine with an Exciting Super Bowl (Chez Kailin - Northbrook IL): Small glass, brief note. Lots of rich orchard fruit with toasted brioche. Good depth and weight.

    January 20, 2020 - Vinous London dinner, January 2020 (La Trompette): Lovely poise and balance, and some delicious cream; prefer this to the 2007.
