Disgorged July 2005.
Apples, apples and more apples. Firm in structure, and actually seeming like it is closign down somewhat. Still, delicious, and full bodied (45% Meunier will do that). We bought this as our house Champagne, and at the rate we are going the house will shortly be dry. Great value at $25.99/bottle.
Paired with a mushroom risotto.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
