  • Afternoon at Chateau Davyd. Tasted blind. Pop and poured. Drank in Gabriel Standart.
    Appearance is clear, medium intensity, reddish pink colour. Faint bubbles almost all gone. Thin legs.
    Nose medium+ intensity, with aromas of mushrooms, sous bois, umami soy, cranberries. Developed.
    On the palate, dry, high acidity, medium- alcohol, medium body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of sous bois earth, mushrooms, savoury umami soy, cranberries, red cherries, Satsuma plum, sweet cream. Oxidative caramel with more air. Medium+ finish.
    Very good quality. Wow I really love the tertiary elements here in this aged champagne. Time to drink up, may be considered past prime by some, but no doubt the tertiary aspect is a thing of beauty.

  • Veuve Clicquot Rose vertical, wine #2: slightly more oxidative notes than the 75 magnum, but not disturbing. Flowery nose with mature berries, lavender, old wardrobe sheets. High acidity, some bitter notes, long finish. Heavy fruit, very enjoyable! BV=1, WV=2

  • I like this champagne more than the group. The TCA on the nose quickly blow off with swirling. Nose is oxidative with brioche, yeast and raspberry mousse. Palate’s good energy compensate the slightly four squareness. This bottle has less freshness compared to my previous bottle.

  • This is a big surprise tonight. Nose has raspberry, caramel and strawberry mousse. Its so elegant with good stuffing and vibrancy. This is very enjoyable.

  • Wife's 40th bday bash. A burnt orange tinge to the pink rose bubbly has developed since its time in bottle over 32 years. Genuinely a unique hue. Bubbles were still very much lively and present, some of them being of a healthy size that I find is larger than that of other houses. To taste this is exquisite; dried rose petals with earth, sand, lemon rind, marmalade on brioche, mushrooms duxelle and ripe melon. Hint of white almonds. A fully mature and well aged expression of a wine normally drunk young.

    (Clicquot Rose Reserve) #3; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-golden w/ a rose tint; NOSE-quite earthy; a Kasha flavor coming through; a little bit of rose petal; some minerality; PALATE-it's solid; some decent structure, but a little flabby; this doesn't have the complexity and the fruit I look for in a bubbly; very disappointing; WS-94; GV-87
