Dom Pérignon

Altum Villare Brut Champagne 2009

I admit to not being a big Dom fan but this was flat out disappointing. I know they usually need a bit of age to really shine but I simply don’t find the potential in this (vintage).

Picked up from the “High-end” cabinet under lock at Raley’s for $230 with the intent of using a 20% savings coupon for “1 bottle of French Wine”.

At the register:
Me: ...and then I have this savings coupon”.

Employee: “it doesn’t seem to scan. (looking closer at the bottle) Oh yeah - it has to be a French Wine”.

Me: “but?? it is”

Employee: “No, Sir, this is a Champagne. The coupon is only valid for a French wine”

Me (slightly perplexed): “Have a nice weekend”.

Demi Sec 1er Cru Champagne Blend

Gosh this is wonderful and unique. A prick of sugar. Crystalline. Delicate white flowers, cantaloupe, and toasted graham cracker. The integration of sugar and bead is haunting. Something you’ll remember. — 5 days ago

Cuvée No. 738 Extra Brut Champagne Blend

Back in 2013, we opened a bottle of 736 in celebration of our nephew William’s birth. Our latest nephew, Asa, is now here! The 738 is still drinking very young. Apples, lemon curd, white peach and a hint of brioche. A Champagne that’s bursting with energy; acid and minerals for days. My last of six and a fantastic glass of bubbles to toast the arrival of our new member to the family 😊. Disgorged June 2015; Dosage 2.5g/l — 3 days ago

Brut Champagne Blend 1996

Wow. Very pure and intense. Driving fruit with gorgeous acidity and balance. Pretty primary still with huge length. Apparently stored at Krug until 2017. Amazingly fresh and balanced. — 3 hours ago

It must be the dog days of summer. BBQ’ing in the backyard, music up and video only NFL! 🏈 Chilling before heading to Napa in the morning for a “Matter of Taste.” Lots of good wine to taste. But, cheers tonight with one of favorite NV Rosé Champange’s to kick-off the evening. 375ml. Numerous previous notes all still apply.

Hope you all enjoy some nice bottles this weekend. Cheers. 🥂

Grande Cuveé 160ÈME Édition Brut Champagne Blend

Light straw gold. Tight nose at first. With an hour of air this blossomed to show notes that show a cross of buttered toast and citrus. Rich and powerful in the mouth. With more air the nose resembles a bowl of bread dough rising. The complexity is amazing. Reinforces how some champagnes need that air to shine. — 6 days ago

Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

The start of watching NFL Football 🏈 in the backyard for the dog days of summer. Reason enough to break out the BSR. Still my favorite N/V Rosé Champagne. Really refreshing on a hot day for our neck of the woods, 83 degrees and 90 plus in the sun.

Happy Friday & weekend all! Cheers 🍾🥂!

@Shay A Yes, Dallas can cook but, at the CA coast, a constant 75 in the summer for the most part. The reason I settled in here. Did you get The Standish? If the bottle is solid & you bought one, you’ll be back to buy the other for sure. 👍

Curiosity got the best of me so I bought both. For $100, why not? Hope to open one soon.
