"The Lassaigne NV Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Le Cotet – from an especially thinly soiled lower-slope parcel – incorporates 10% of older reserve wines from barrel with its 2009 base, 10% of which was also aged in barrel. Apple and grapefruit offer aromatic pungency and exuberant juiciness on the palate, but this cuvee is dominated by stony, saline, chalky and otherwise mineral elements. Toasted nuts, incisive cress and a twist of lemon rind lend invigoration; musky notes intrigue; and maritime salinity milks the salivary glands in a long, mouth-coating finish. The Montgueux-typical sense of overt density manages not to weigh down the wine or sap its formidable sense of energy and vivacity."

Moet & Chandon Nectar Imperial Rose

"Creamy, with honeyed flavors of passion fruit, guava and spice that show a hint of candle wax. There's good intensity to the acidity in this exuberant rosé, and it just balances the tropical overtones, with an off-dry, moderate finish."

Bollinger Special Cuvee Brut

"Very elegant and refined in texture, with fresh, focused acidity finding fine integration with the layered notes of patisserie apple, black currant, smoky mineral and biscuit, complimented by hints of lemon zest and honey. Lingering finish."

2007 Agrapart & Fils Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Mineral

"As usual for this bottling, originating with two neighboring 40-year-old parcels in Avize near the communal line with Cramant, and vinified roughly half-each in tank and cask, Agrapart’s 2007 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Mineral is only coming onto the market this fall in France, and the bottle I tasted in June – with a written-over 2006 label – had been disgorged in January of this year solely for purposes of press tastings. Pleasantly piquant aromatic suggestions of sourdough yeasts, toasted buckwheat and lemon rind have their persistently stimulating counterpart on a strikingly delicate and nuanced palate, with stone, chalk, salt and smoke accenting fresh apple and winter pear. With time, a more caressing textural side emerged. The sense of salivary gland stimulation in the lingering finish is extremely active, and combined with tactile impingements of chalk, radish, lemon rind and active yeasts (figuratively speaking, of course). This is certainly less obviously multi-faceted and energetic than the corresponding “Terroirs” bottling, but utterly intriguing, impressively refined, and likely to merit at least a half dozen years of attention."
