6L! Ben poured this Methuselum at his wedding reception. Champagne always seems to taste better from a large format.

Apple, toast, touch of spice. I could use a little more lees.

Although this one is only 40% Chardonnay, Chardonnay dominates the nose with pears, apples, yeast and lemons. There are background hints from red fruit but the white predominates. The finish is very citrusy and acidic: out of balance. For my taste the wine wants more dosage: Brut la Française is too sour for me.

$57.99/46.39 good with food. More mild, not too tart or acidic. Tatting we saved Paris by pleading with the Germans not to blow up the historical landmark. Domaine Carneros in California is a Tattinger estate.
