Heck of a hosting by @Weston Eidson last night for the City Club wine group. All wines were tasted blind. Always just silly good. One of my favorite aromatics from champagne...”oxidative” with yeast, toffee, and caramelized nougat. Palate carrying sweet fruit cradled by oak with impeccable texture. I called this NV champagne, but mentioned it could be Krug. I will state though that once the producer was revealed, we were all a bit surprised based on the palate...it was rich, but wasn’t as powerful as expected? Then again, it was the third of three champagnes served so the power effect may have dwindled based on palate expectations.

Broad and soft. Lovely lucious lemon fruit with delicate acidity. 2009 base. This is a real crowd pleaser- beautifully balanced. This is lovely- one to drink now while waiting for the 164 to settle

Candied lemon, grapefruit, brioche, caramel. What really sets this apart is the intensity and depth of flavor. Improved with air and the last 1/3rd of the bottle held up well in the fridge overnight
