New Year´s Eve - The Champagne´s

2008 La Grande Année, Bollinger
A refined, chalky nose with notes of almond paste, ripe peach, summer warm gravel and cap gun smoke. Very fine.
The taste is racy and refined with gorgeous red fruit, a uplifting acidity and a long, long delicate finish. Still on the young side of things, 6+ years.
94p   (tasted 2023/12)

2014 Rosé, Louis Roederer
A deep, fine nose with notes of grapefruit, red apples, potato water and chrushed rocks. Very, very good.
The taste is high and fine with notes of candied apples, gravel, smoke and tangerines. A fine acidity. Young. 8+ years.
91p   (tasted 2023/12)
