Gervais Gobillard NV Champagne. 34% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, and 33% Pinot Meunier. Aged at least two years per the bottle. Wonderful, frothy mousse and small delicate bubbles. Pure gold color. Smells like apricot, toast, and florals. Subtle and balanced, but young, which I guess is the Meunier coming through. Good with fresh fruit. — a month ago
Wonderful crisp flavor, and Marie de Moy continues to be a favorite. Deep gold color, with bright notes. Unfortunately this bottle may have been a bad one; went pretty flat after 3 or so minutes in the glass. Don't let that discourage though, really delicious. — 3 months ago
2018, by the Prisoner Wine Company. Healdsburg California. The cage loop broke in my hand so I had to use pliers. 🥴 After a quick trip to the toolbox in the garage, we were back in business. Unfortunately, The bottle issue was a foreshadowing of what was to come.
Pale golden color, and about 20 seconds after I poured it, it completely stopped bubbling. Notes of pear, honey, and crackers. Oddly sweet for a brut. The most disappointing thing I've purchased at the grocery store since my experimental potato chip phase. — 6 months ago
