I believe BuzzzzOff has a pretty refined palate when it comes-yes I am going to use that word- bubbly from different areas of the world. Also Gloria Ferrer Carneros 2003 might be worth a try if you are looking for more yeast and bread dough than Dom.
I must not be in the norm. I expect a wine in this price range t be marvelous. Capture the senses. That did not happen. I recently opened a 2002 Bollimger Anne. The lightness was like being a feather carried in a warm breeze. After half the glass the nose was emphatic-no-beguiling. Yeast and dough ( yes I am a fan of that thus the accolades) were easily defined in there own wonderful way. Not subtle but also not overt-just perfect. I guess I will get a bottle or two of Dom for guests but also open other champagnes hoping I will show the way and Don is not part of my cellar. I fully realize some vintages are great- but that to me seems few and far in between. To be blunt-you are paying for the wine and scores given by the impressive name and bottle. Of course each palate is different and I could be all wet. Dave
Third time having this wine and it way more evolved the prior versions I had. Creamy nougat and custard on the nose. Fully bodied in the mouth. I'm not sure this wine was stored properly but if it was, these should be consumed sooner rather than later.
