Les Noues Ecueil 1er Cru Extra Brut Champagne Blend 2015

Not correct bottle (app won’t find it).... First time trying Les Noues from excellent grower Frédéric Savart. It is fresh, vibrant and youthful with a fine mousse and a bit of an Armagnac-like nose that further reveals exotic citrus, brioche, toasted nuts and smokey minerals. Finishes with good length and tension. — 19 days ago

Les Vignes de Montgueux Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay

Thanksgiving wine #1. Crisp, mineral layered Champagne. Vinous texture & excellent acidic structure. Honestly could have drank this all night. It played off the food beautifully. — a day ago

Clos Jacquin Grand Cru Brut Champagne Chardonnay

Lyle Fass

Bready, yeasty nose, superb minerality, so so deep. Insane minerals. So deep, so mineral, so elegant, so salty. So deep. So textured. What a finish. Super focused. Seems a bit young. This really will open. What a midpalate. Toastiness. Concentration and superb textures. Amazing lift. Salty finish. — 6 hours ago

Cuvée Rare Champagne Blend 2002

Celebrating another trip around the sun. This Piper Rare is medium straw in colour. Masses of ultra fine bubbles ( fine persistent mousse). Complex toasty aromas with a touch of gun smoke and flinty notes. On the palate Complex, Intense and Refreshing all at once. Chalky minerality with a saline note. Yellow fruits with creamy notes starting to take over the acid at 18 years. A blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. An outstanding Champagne from a great year where the contents more than lives up to the bling of the packaging. Tempted to make a statement and give it 98 points. — 8 days ago

@Bob McDonald all good! But after 25 years living in VIC I’ve returned to my home state of SA for something of a tree change in the Adelaide Hills. Left just before the first lockdown :)

That was a good move Simon considering the lockdown length in Melbourne.


Cuvée Rosé Brut Champagne Pinot Noir

Rough label, so we had to pop the cork. This is effortless drinking, but $90 isn’t cheap and there are some incredible Grower Champagne options for $30 less. But lovely color and uncomplicated sipping. — 20 days ago

The best color for rosé Champagne, so wickedly beautiful! Our last bottle until my next shipment lands between now and the end of the year. Prior notes still apply. — 7 days ago

Jacques Selosse

Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

Speechless! Long, lonely afternoon with 2-hour family Zoom...pared down trad turkey feast with just the two of us. But, hard to feel down with a glass of Selosse Rose. Such finesse and balance... I searched two years for a source... and now I swallow hard and purchase in 3’s. Easily the best Rose in my Champagne history. — a day ago

Cuvée Jadis Extra Brut Premier Cru Champagne Blend 2008

Thanksgiving 2020; a quiet day with just my wife and the kitties, hopefully 2021 brings family and dear friends back for group enjoyment of this Holiday.

Nose has effervescent limestone water, crusty sourdough bread, excessively zested lemon and lemon creme pie.

Palate has saline lemon juice, lemon slice + peel, an amazing level of acidity but equally balanced; what a finish, Wow!

Brut 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs

A pale straw color with a generous amount of tiny bubbles. A fine mousse and bead. This is an incredibly alive champagne and it starts immediately. Meyer lemons and tart green apples, along with smoke and mint on the nose. That wonderful citrus streak continues throughout.

100% Chardonnay primarily from Mareuil-sur-Ay and Chouilly. Family owned grower and one of my favorite producers with such consistent quality. Richer and fuller than many others, it’s round and vibrant. Lovely depth and acidity with a backbone of herbs and spices.

Chalky minerality and crystallized honey shine here. Beautiful toasted bread and almonds on display, along with more green apples and lemons. Apricots, plums, and peaches sing a lovely song. Chamomile and more honey on the long, exceedingly pleasant finish. A highly attractive pour.
