- Krug Clos du Mesnil is also magnificent and I prefer it to Bolly VVF at same price point
Also Taittinger Comte de Champagne Blanc de Blanc is the epitiome if finesse and elegance and ages remarkable well.
Also love - Dom perignon - 1982 and 1990 are superb now, 1996 is youithful albeit will be legendary in time and one of best ever (had a 78 Dom Rose two weeks ago that was still alive and excellent!)
Love Cristal, Egly Ouriet Blanc de Noirs and Vintage, Jacques selosse, Pol Roger Vintage and Sir Winston Churchill, Lanson Noble Cuvee, Bollinger Grande Annee (with 10-15 years maturation) - prefer to RD although RD's from 1970's are exceptional like 1975, 1976, and 1979. Alos, Laurent Perrier Grand Siecle, Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque (1985 is exceptional), and of course salon and Vilmary Creation. Not a fan of larmandier-Bernier at all I'm afraid - too minerally and acidic.
Wow, realy good selections, thoguh I have too disagree with you about the Krug 1979 and 1982.
And ohh I forgot the Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque 1985, though I think the 88' is in that section too.
