How was it? I tend to like my Champagne young, but I thought the 2002 Les Chetillons needed more time.



Painfully vibrant with laser like acidity. Needs a few years, no doubt, but I actually think it will give previous vintages a run for the money. This is built for the long haul too IMO.

May I ask how much you paid for the 02'? I think the 04' is well worth the 120$.

It's a while back. $75 or $85, I think. By the way, during the summers of 2010 and 2011, we tasted a lot of Champagne. The 2004 vintage wines were impressive.


Just one more sip.

80$ is a steal for this Champagne...I dont think I can think of any Champagne that could compete at that price. Well done.

Restaurant Week in Charleston, SC:

1971 Jacques Prieur Clos de Vougeot - The best CdV I have ever tasted.
2000 Chateau Belair - Tannins still very prevelant
2009 G.D. Vajra Langhe Rosso - very nice wine
2006 Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva Rancia - the best '06 CCR I have tasted. Really an excellent wine.
NV Barnaut Blanc de Noir - Enjoyed by all.
NV Duval Leroy - OK

Dinners at The Charleston Grill, Cypress, Sermet's Courtyard, and Husk. I need to eat broth for the next month. Wonderful food.

1990 clos du mont olivet chateauneuf du pape (just a great bottle)
1998 vieux donjon chateauneuf-du-pape (excellent now but a legend in 5 years)

Good example of roussane, but I found it a little alcohol-hot for my tastes and a too simple at that price point. My last glass started to come around as it warmed. Going to revisit tomorrow.

poisted a notes under the retro in the TN section.

but it was kinda like I was expecting, muted, not ready and still noticeable tannins.

to be fair, I like my wines a little more on the aged side as I rather enjoy cedar/cigar box/wet tobacco notes.

This certainly got a little fruitier at the 2 hour mark but still felt muted.

White burg was the 2008 Domaine Matrot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes. All the wines showed really well. Good times as always.
