    April 7, 2019 - Still young, this shows a big, robust nose full of lemon, pineapple, custard, and brioche. Very rich but balanced by terrific acid. You'd do well to keep these stashed away for a few years; with this structure and balance it's got plenty of life ahead and should be ravishing when the tertiary notes emerge. 93+

    February 2, 2019 - Absolutely bone dry vintage champagne. Slight oxidation. Tastes of bread and toast, with lots of citrus notes, mostly lemon and grapefruit. A few buttery notes round out the taste. It might be heresy to state that I enjoy Clicquot yellow label even more this austere and considerably more pricey version, but c'est la vie.

    December 30, 2018 - I love underrated Champagne vintages. Everybody was looking towards bad, unexciting fruit, but overlooking what kind of wines this fruit gave. Golden yellow in the glass, the color of kings. So expressive on the nose with perfect integration of freshly cut green fruit (apple, pear), citruses, brioche and crushed stone. I tasted the '89 before this. When comparing the two, I'd say this is leaner, softer and brighter. It doesn't have the exact richness of the former, but still shines with character and long finish.

    November 22, 2018 - Mostly reductive in style with slight hints of oxidation. Nice white citrus, beautiful soft chalkiness, sea spray, nice mouthfeel with micro bubbles, white flowers and very good acidity and soft, subtle beautiful finish.
