Louis Roederer - Brut Premier
Bright and fresh. Mild citrus flavors; some yeast and richness in the mid-palate. Well balanced and thoroughly enjoyable. Definitely a "go to" NV bubbly!
Camille Giroud - Volnay
Popped and poured. Bright, light ruby color. Red fruit and some spice. Very silky texture and great mouth-feel. Short to moderate finish.
Double-decanted 3+ hours prior to drinking. A bit surprised at how well this wine was showing due to the vintage and its relative youth. Rich but elegant wine with seamless balance of fruit, acid and structure. A rather powerful wine but not heavy in any way. This wine should drink well for many years.
Double-decanted 3+ hours prior to drinking. Dark fruits, even some plum, along with some mocha.
Popped and poured over 3 hours. Dark fruits on the nose; the same on the palate with very primary flavors. Enjoyable but not really an exciting wine. Overall, rather flat, likely due to the very hot vintage an relatively low acid.
