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. 💰 🎷 🎸 🎶🥂

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

Les Chétillons Cuvée Spéciale Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay 2010

Les Chétillons consists of three aged parcels of vines, ranging from 45 to 70+ years of age which are situated in the Grand Cru village of Le Mesnil sur Oger. This legendary cuvée is known for its incredible combination of elegance, precision, brisk acidity and intense minerality, and it certainly does not fall short in this vintage as the 2010 is another sensational release from Rodolphe Péters. This gorgeous Blanc de Blancs immediately impresses with its stunning aromatics of fresh orchard fruits, lemon zest, orange blossoms, chalky minerals, crushed hazelnuts and toasted brioche which all take shape beautifully in the glass. On the palate this fresh and vibrant, displaying a gorgeous fine texture, with striking elegance and purity. This goes on to impress with its outstanding balance and precision, as flavors of orchard fruits, white flowers and toasted brioche are underlined by lovely minerality and crisp acidity leading up to the dazzling finish. Simply put, this is an excellent vintage for Les Chétillons, and while this cuvée has the track record to age gracefully, the 2010 offers excellent upfront appeal and is drinking beautifully today. — a month ago

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

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.

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.
