    Similar in nature but a bit broader than my last bottle. Brioche, apple and pear, with some citrus fruit and a chalkiness on the nose.. Texturally rich, with more autolytic notes in the fore. The dosage is still a little prominent for me right now, but that said, it has excellent cut to go with its density and remains focused. Thi has a lot going on, but I think it needs time to gain some focus. 93

    October 14, 2021 - Love love love. Opened to celebrate 15 years with my beautiful, inspiring and tolerant wife.

    From the first smell and taste it delivers complexity and richness that we have seldom had before. Lovely fruit apples pears dates. Yeasty dough that is a highlight of taittinger that I have had in the past. Seaside minerality. Creamy mouth feel. And youthful acidity.

    I'm glad to have used this to celebrate this year. And will wait many years to enjoy my remaining bottles.

    Drink now and enjoy. But also save for the future celebrating you will have in your life.

    October 9, 2021 - Great albeit young rendition of this classic. Excellent balance and precision. To my taste, needs a few more years still.
