So fresh you would not know it was a 1995 but disgorged in January 2014. Lemon minerality and hints of stone fruit and touch of pineapple. A fine persistent bead. The perfect balance of complexity and freshness. When I first tried this I thought it was rich enough to have a % of Pinot Noir but it is a Blanc des Blancs. Amazingly still available because they “made shitloads of it” said Stephen Leroux. A few hours later a honeyed nuance. Celebrating my 2000th Note on Delectable. I would like to congratulate Delectable for creating such an enjoyable and useable App. I can see what my American and European friends are drinking and try to purchase same. Also celebrating my son Hugh’s 31 st Birthday in New York. If anyone is looking for office space in Manhattan contact Hugh at CBRE.

Lovely rich traditional champagne--one of the few white wines where some oak and sugar is a really nice thing

1st tried this 8 yrs ago, it was one of my highlights of wine up to that point, I'm really glad to see it still hugely impresses me after all this time, beautiful cumquat marmalade. Outstanding.

Seriously awesome bubbly. Perfect balance between yeasty and rich and a more linear mineral citrus bullet across the palate.

A spectacular bottle with the Charles Heidseick team. Creamy, integrated, round and nutty. It is amazing that this is current release!
