    April 12, 2020 - Fantastic Vintage Champagne! Aromas of yellow apple, brioche and fresh firewood. Flavors of roasted pears, bread and Parmesan cheese rinds. Perfect column of tiny bubbles in the center of the glass. Outstanding!

    February 29, 2020 - Dinner at JB Ah Meng (JB Ah Meng, Geylang, Singapore): A very winous Champagne - this smelt almost like a rich white wine, with butter, cream and chalk, with toasted bread and rich apple fruit below. The palate was quite a bit more developed than the last bottle, but still very youthful, with bright lemony acidity and a firm mousse holding up rich, powerful, very Grand Dame flavours of red apples, bread and yeast, even a touch of white meat on it. Still a touch on the simple side, but there was a lot of power and authority to this, with a lovely push of length at the finish. A solid Champagne, if rather blocky and broad-shoulders. Starting to show well now, but this really needs a decade or more to really show its chops.

    February 27, 2020 - Very pale colour still
    YEasty, meaty nose, orange peel notes.
    Acidity still quite tight but quickly blossoms and fills out with a rich nutty finish. Very long. Gorgeous.
    65% Pinot Noir

    January 30, 2020 - 2004 champagne horizontal (110 Taillevent London): Respectable performance of this weak cuvee. Quite balanced and diplomatic.
