Yesterday’s Wednesday Wine Committee lunch. Normal format of 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind.

An enjoyable and down the middle type of champagne. At first, it was almost a touch sweet and had bigger bubbles than I expected, but the second bottle had a finer bead. Apple tart, chalk, and very little yeast. I let this mellow out over lunch and it smelled like fresh honey after a while. I believe this is the second oldest champagne house in champagne? I called this French NV champagne.
