Blanc de Blancs Chouilly Grand Cru Chardonnay 2008

BYOB wine night with friends & various industry acquaintances celebrating the recent induction of a couple of them into the ranks of CMS Certified.
.
Pretty solid starter bubbles with great body and complexity; very chalky and mineral-driven. 6g/l.

Les Avats Gran Cru Millésime Champagne Blend 2010

Pre-Labor Day festivities with friends.

Just crazy, trust me...more notes later...

24 Hour Update:
Nose has cold, hand-whipped cream, green pear flesh, fresh lemon pith and lemon cream cheese puff pastry.
Palate has pear juice with a squeeze of fresh lemon, oxidized red apple, candied lemon with some serious minerality on the nearly endless finish. So lovely...
Blanc de Blancs, aristocratic; I'd love to drink nothing but the Grand Cru's of vintage Champagne, so indulgent!

Is that a warthog on the label?

I think so, Champagne Warthog... Can't go wrong, this is the best critter label wine I've ever had.

Posting tasting Champagne before dinner.

Nice N/V Grand Champagne. Beautiful mousse, bruised apple, pear, citrus, baguette crust, grainy chalkiness, gritty volcanic minerals, sea fossils and loads of spring flowers.

Terre de Vertus 1er Cru Brut Nature Champagne Chardonnay 2013

Nice depth, lots autolytic notes and that perfect combo of breadth across the palate and chalky crush to bring it back. Enjoyed the extra dimension this had compared to a ‘10 previously tasted, just a more complete wine throughout. Punches above price point — 9 days ago

To borrow a page from @Anthony Lombardi postings, today Eddie Money passed away @ 70 years of age. Too soon!

So many childhood memories to his music. Was he the GOAT of Rock N Roll? Not exactly. But, he left his mark none the less. I find it’s memories that make music & wine greater.

So Eddie took his “Ticket to Paradise” and got himself “Home Tonight!” For all the great music and memories, I raise a glass of this appropriately choicen Champagne because of its bottling designation and say, cheers to Eddie Money. RIP Eddie. 💰 🎷 🎸 🎶🥂
