    September 5, 2019 - Lovely 15 year old champagne, with rich flavours and great persistence, balanced by fresh finish.

    August 19, 2019 - Tasty. Fresh with hints of pear and faint peach. Bright. Very fine bubbles. Gained weight and nuance with sir. Looks to have very good potential, but still young. Delicious nonetheless! 91++

    August 11, 2019 - Extremely fresh and refined, but all together muted and demure. I think a tete de cuvée should have something to say, some sort of perspective on the house and this just left me confused about what Veuve is trying to do with this wine. Sure, it tasted fine, but what was the point?

    July 28, 2019 - Jordan's 1989 Bordeaux Dinner (Feast & Imbibe - Evanston IL): Mostly apple character with some berry notes. Good weight, less complexity than I would expect prefer. A faint bitter note on finish that I expect will soften with a few more years in the cellar.

    July 22, 2019 - Not as excited as first time, almost muted at first on the nose, gained a little with air and by warming a bit, classic fresh bread, orange and lemon zest on the nose, great attack with fine bubbles, high acid, lacks a lot on the mid palate, feel a bit disjojnted, but at least sails on great lenght. Overall very good but missing harmony and complexity.
