  • NV Domaine Chandon Rosé 84 Points

    USA, California

    10/17/07: Kind of a sweet strawberry thing going on the nose. THe palate veers toward more cranberries, seems like an extra dry in style, but the finish is dry. Quite a nice bottle considering the price. 85-87

    12/7/07: Liked even less at this tasting, and it was up against similarly priced sparklers. The acidity is too low. Pass. 82-84

  • 1999 Moët & Chandon Champagne Cuvée Dom Pérignon 90 Points

    France, Champagne

    10/17/07 This Champers is like a ballerina. Light and quick on its feet, and it moves with elegance. But there's not a lot of body. Complexity and voluptiosness seems sacrifiiced to get that light, clean, and elegant style. My first Dom, so I'm not sure how this compares to other vintages. 89-91

    12/7/07: I still think this is overpriced in this vintage. There's precision, but not enough of everyrthing else. I'd bump it up to 91 tonight.

  • 1996 Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne Brut La Grande Dame 93 Points

    France, Champagne

    Lots of structure. Bright, biting acidity that is sure to give this wine a long life. Clean and bright, but with a lovely complexity. The finish doesn't end. Blew the '99 Dom out of the water. Would love to try in a few years. 93+
