behdadjoon Champagne is the name of the game. So beautiful and such a lovely consistency in how this champagne evolves over time. From the 70s till now every one I have tasted has that nutty brûlée character that goes with the toast and honey. So different from the classic cuvée he makes. Fab! 4d

behdadjoon This was the beautiful raspberry fruit bomb I remembered, finally. Amazing how Mortet can have a such a distinctive house style and yet reflect differences in terroir so clearly. Nice, and very much their own style 6d

behdadjoon Today was a lunch rather than a tasting. Jacques vs Emmanuel of yesterday. No contest between the master at his prime and the young apprentice starting out. But great to see the trajectory in the new wines. 89 rayas was a dream though! 3w

behdadjoon V3. Yes, the 07 was the wine of the evening. That said, amongst the 20 or so tasters there was absolutely no consensus. Few votes for the 06, because of the acidity. Few for the 01 blanc, no idea why as you can see from my notes. And few for the older vintages scattered. 3w
