Substance Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

2001 base
Disgorged 2008
The hallmark oxidative note but not strong in the context of Selosse. Lots of complexity. A very interesting mixture of almonds, peaches and citrus scents and flavors. Felt a little heavy in the mouth. Almost felt like I was drinking a still wine rather than champagne.

Initial Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

#4-disgorged 2017, 2011 base
#5-disgorged 2016, 2010 base

#7-disgorged 2008, 2001 base
#8-disgorged 2007, 2002 base
Amazing consistency, oxidative notes with apricots and apple cider. On the palate, green apples , sherry notes and citrus zest. What separated the bottles were the various levels of freshness. All were enjoyable but none had that “wow” factor. My rating is a composite.

Sir Winston Churchill Brut Champagne 2013

This wine is STUNNING.

Its nose offers notes of pear and apple tart with toasted almond, nougat, marzipan, brioche, lemon curd, raspberry coulis, pie crust, dried white rose, chalk, oyster shell …

On the palate this wine is creamy with vibrant acidity adding lift and balance; it has a fine-beaded and persistent mousse and a long, elegant finish. Flavors are consistent with the nose.

Special Birthday bubbles for the ultimate Champagne lover,
