No objections from me!

Tasted any recently? The only one I really bought in any quantity was the 08 Les Bournais. I had a few last year and then another a few weeks ago that seemed to be gaining delightful focus. I planned to drink my last bottle in the next few weeks. Although it would be interesting to see it age for several more years, I just don't have the space.

Oh yes, you've been in New Zealand. Welcome back, and just in time for your second summer!

I wouldn't compare them to Champagne or anything else, but they stand out as wonderful Vouvray petillants, especially considering the sea of year after year of drab Loire sparklers. I have a hard time finding good sparkling Vouvrays. It's so seldom I run into a drinkable one that a few weeks ago I almost fell in love with a fifteen buck bottle of NV Christophe Thorigny Vouvray Brut. My wife and I drank a second one tonight and, maybe it's bottle variation, but this one came across as just acceptable fizz, with discernible Chenin flavors but nothing to get excited about. Mind you, I'm a Vouvray freak, so I'd like Vouvray sparkers to be great, like the secs, demi-secs, and moelleux, but I'd settle for just good. If anyone has any recommendation for good Vouvray sparklers, or other Loire Chenin sparklers, that are on the market now, please chime in. I'll rush out and buy them.
