Community Tasting Note

    December 11, 2019 - I guess I'll depart from the herd a bit here. This was more impressive than enjoyable. Perhaps it will be better with some age, I sure hope so for the price. I guess I want my Champagne either a bit more suave or with a bit more personality.

It has such huge acidity and flavor it needs food, probably something very rich, great cheese, or even lobster at this point in its development. Also a little air. Good luck if you have more, Cheers!
