In the name of science, a few champagnes/sparkling wines were sampled today in an effort to help a friend for comparative research reasons. Hard way to spend a Monday...

It hurt me to open this as I knew it would be painfully young...and it was 😔. But, in the name of science, it was analyzed! Most distinctive out of the lineup. Straight up cream soda mousse. Definitely oxidative in style but not channeling any of those sherry like notes. This carried ripe tropical fruits and a touch of honeycomb, versus the ‘13 I opened a few months back that was completely open for business with marzipan & roasted cashews. Hold this.

Infanticide. But the promise is there and made for a glorious bottle popping in the late light on the porch up in the mountains.
