Introduction

Wow what an evening! Great food and company to match. Thanks to all for their generosity.

Flight 1 - Aperitif, served before food (2 Notes)

  • NV Villa Sparina Gavi Brut 86 Points

    Italy, Piedmont, Gavi

    Medium gold color with reticent nose of bitter almond. Dry, and nutty with hints of peach pit. Nice mousse; medium finish. A tad one-dimensional, but refreshing. Cortese grape make a nice change for a sparkling wine.

  • 1996 Henriot Champagne Brut Millésimé 91 Points

    France, Champagne

    Pale yellow with a buttery nose. Bright acidity with lemon and mineral predominating. Rather aggressive mouse. Bracing and probably would go better with food than as an aperitif. Still very youthful.
