2008 Gimmonet and pizza. Nose of bread and yeast flavours and tropical fruits like pine apple and bananas. Dripping and fat, this hawaii pizza should have stayed a few more min in the oven. Oh, and the Gimmonet was as fresh and delightful as always.

Passed me by a touch this one. Alas, as I normally love a good lean Champers. A touch shrill for my palate today. I'll try it again.

Lovely aromatics; fresh pastries, toast and lemon curd. Amazingly chalky texture and shape

Nice medium-bodied champagne, not too dry, very clean though, more classic, not the newer non-dosage style, really balanced and good

2008 -I love this wine, and this vintage has all the things. Give 20 minutes air post pop. That's if you can keep it out of your gob!

Outta magnum. Ripping fresh. Almost angular but just dances along the edge. Yummy. Wanna drink more... in a coupla years...to compare.
