    October 17, 2021 - Dinner out in Jersey with some friends: I still think this is drinking on the very young side. It's a bit tighter and yet I have a feeling that it's going to be one of the really good DPs in the long run. So give it more time if you have any.

    October 10, 2021 - Dom Pérignon / Vosne-Romanée Tasting-cum-Lunch (Restaurant Slagerij De Beurs, Amsterdam, NL): Rich and compact, very energetic and tightly wound, closed phase, darker pitch than the 2008, Pinot dominated in the flavours. Revisit in five years.

    October 8, 2021 - A very good, well cellared btle. Perfect drinking if you prefer your dom to be still quite fresh, vibrant & hint of creaminess back palate.
    That length and desired rich texture comes through once the btle has warmed up.
    So if you like your champagne with that mouth feel aged complexity then wait

    October 2, 2021 - Purchased on release and stored at Octavian until delivery last week. Drunk over 3 nights and not much change, hardly any signs of maturity in appearance or on the palate but never really opened up. Not a bad wine and certainly didn't seem off, but not much concentration or length on the palate and it just didn't impress. Not sure if an underperforming bottle or just too young, but either way this bottle was very average. A friend who drinks far more champagne than me has drunk thru his case and has never been impressed by this wine, I was hoping I had a better batch so fingers crossed on the rest!

    September 27, 2021 - Miyazaki A5 Wagyu night (Andrew's): Drank alongside 2002 Krug (and 10 other bottles). We universally preferred the Krug, which had more complexity.
