Third time having this, and as with previous run-ins, a solid bubble. Laser acidity but without any austerity. Rich nose of cream, apple, brioche, and some spice. Kinda like an apple pie. The palate brings about a wonderful freshness with citrusy focus, framed by gentle toasty and nutty notes. Salinity, while present, plays second fiddle to the fruit weight. Finishes quite dry (think they nailed the dosage here - 8 g/l) and long. Will probably benefit from cellaring. Another winner from the epic 08' vintage.

Simple, too much dosage, overripe, one dimensional.

Tonight I learned there is a lot more to that yellow label. What a night with Veuve Clicquot’s winemaker Pierre Casenave. Thanks Clare for making this happen!
