Couldn't #saberit, but this was a treat. So youthful and the best part is you can taste every component of the fruity base wine still. Amazing! Happy holidays, keep on drinking bubbles.

The second cuve of this vintage from P Paillard I've had. The first spent 7 yrs on lees before disgorgement, was dry, biscuity and creamy-textured. This one was disgorged after 10 yrs on lees - saline/seashells/lees, dry, mouthwatering, lingering. Wow, incredible difference and yet another reason to love Champagne.

From Grand Cru vineyards in the Bouzy region. Goes thru malo. Pleasant and well made but in tough company including 23 vintage bottlings.

10 year lees contact is what really makes this one stand out. Sharp with a classic custard palate filled with notes of overripe apple and toast.

Fresh and sassy to get the evening really swinging. From magnum, because caring is sharing.
