    October 17, 2020 - Very nice nose of stony fruit, light pastry aromas and such nice minerality. A very smooth yet vivid acidity with finesse, class and elegance, very small yet creamy bubbles, long delicious finish with that slight pastry and stony fruit taste, irresistible mixture of energy and class. 94-95

    Nez aromatique et fin, brioché, fruits blancs, minéral. Acidité et tension appuyée tout en étant d’une finesse et délicatesse incroyable, bulles hyper fines tout en étant delicatement crémeuses, une finale très longue avec une touche briochée et cette minéralité irrésistible, belle énergie, quelle classe et quel délice.

    October 17, 2020 - Outdoor mostly masked socially distanced B-day party: My first magnum of this vintage. 750s have drunk well since release, but this bottle gave me the impression the mags would be better off laying on their sides a while longer (duh!). Maybe it was because it followed such a great bottle and rendition of the Grand Siecle, which clearly had more age and depth. This was still beautiful, with the Comte glycerin infused mouthfeel, lemony and orange cream, mineral. Still beautiful, but I won't open another in this format for 5-10.

    October 15, 2020 - Exuberant lemon and orange, brioche and cream, but it's the glycerine texture, minerals and balance that keep me coming back to this one. I'm embarrassed how many of these I've consumed over the years.

    October 15, 2020 - First ever experience with this champagne. It was reallly good. Minerality, more delicate/finessed bubbles... good complexity. Restaurant didnt suggest to decant, but it definitely opened up over 15-20 minutes. Served in Zalto Universals - would recommend.

    October 11, 2020 - This is drinking so well. Deep and complex nose. Mellon, gunpower, crushed stones and bread crust. Explosive deep taste of stones, exotic fruits and rounded spices. Pepper, thyme etc. Great glass.
