    August 11, 2021 - A terrific showing for this wine. Red berries and orchard fruit, almond croissant and subtle balsamic. Early maturity but still fresh. I drifted away from VC a decade ago, but need to increase my purchases again. This was a fine bottle.

    June 6, 2021 - Every Good Boy Deserves Cellar Wine 2

    Simply smashing follow up to the pet nat. The Grande Dame seems to be in a good place, with wonderful tiny bubbles, intense, shockingly ripe tree fruit notes, a round, rich palate, and an exquisite finish. Got better with each sip, I savored the last few drops as best I could. The last sip was the best. A strong contender for WOTN.

    May 18, 2021 - Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame 2004.
    Småpen ungdommelig nese.
    Livlig på smak med høy konsentrasjon og friskhet.
    Brer seg flott ut i munn.
    Skikkelig spenst, som jeg har savnet tidligere.
    Liten utvikling.
    Presis lang finish med super mineralitet.
    Gir snusleppe.
    Beste GD smakt. 92-93p

    May 11, 2021 - Terrific bottle, toasty, nutty, almost buttery, showing its age. Each sip made you ponder it. Nice splurge for a post-pandemic get-together.
