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 — 8 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. 💰 🎷 🎸 🎶🥂

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!

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

Cuvée de Réserve Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

Celebrating nearing the end of eating outside for 2019 . Beautiful honey & apple scents on the nose . Joined in the mouth by judicious acid and hints of citrus . Great accompaniment to our grilled portobellos. Love .375’s. Psychological score would be much higher😊 — 9 days ago
