Community Tasting Note

    November 9, 2021 - I turned a wine snob friend on to this. He is appalled at the thought of drinking anything that is NV. His go to wines, get this: Dom, Cristal, Comtes de Champagne. I talked him into trying this, so he pinched his nose and bought 4 bottles. Last week he had an offer to buy Cristal 08 at an attractive price, he offered it to me, I graciously declined. His following sentence was a mind blowing sentence that I thought that I would never hear from his mouth. He said "Yeah you're right, who needs Cristal when you can find NV like this for under 50 bucks!" WOW!!!! My job is done here...This is straight up delicious and slightly serious. Corks are flying...Drink!

    Did you note the disgorgement and mis en cave dates from the back label?

I see them as batches since I buy this by 6s or case….champagne, the most overrated luxury next to burgundy and truffles…until something magical happens. Most of the time, you’re shooting blnks.
