    This seems a lot like some of your other ill-informed comments. Perhaps...bouji means

    LOL

    From my own collection, I enjoy Krug (this may becoming better known among certain crowds though...so feel free to send them to me if the stigma becomes unbearable) most often. I have some of the Diebolt Vallois cuffthis mentions - really my first serious foray into boutique producers, as it is actually available in the PA region. Would love to explore more if it were convenient.

    I have a bottle of Bollinger Vielles Vignes from my birth year - has anyone tried this? Would love to know what to expect. Should probably drink it soon.

    Vieilles Vignes Françaises? It should be terrific. It's made of three parcels in Grand Cru from vines which survived the phyloxera, it means they are roughly 120 years old. [​IMG]
    The level of complexity in this wine is outstanding, made of 100% blanc de noir (100% pinot noir). It's not really a champagne though, prepare to be surprised by what you will taste.

    Nice selection.
    A relativeley newcomer, Larmandier-Bernier is worth a try.

    Actually, Boujis is a club in London, which I like the sound of, and the actual place is not bad either... That's where I got the name from...

    I found the idea of you even knowing where to find that kinda funny. I randomly clicked on another definition:

    bouillon cube

    Another term for nigger. Derived from the scent commonly given off by niggers. Similar to Old Chicken Soup.

    Rufus sure does stink like bouillion cube today.




    bougy

    Of or pertaining to someone who is not only pretentious but believes themselves to be financially and physically superior. Those who succumb to elitist ideals.

    I hate those bougy Abercrombie kids.




    bougy

    Another tight ass word....

    if u ar not fitted or matchin, u ar bougy..whack suckin

    if u ar a little fag u are bougy

    yo u lookin bougy as hell dawg!

    I was just trying to figure out where the word came from. The link I posted was the first hit on google when you search for bouji.

    I prefer the more full bodied creamy ones like Cliquot and Henriot.

    I'm suprised you haven't heard of urbandictionary. It's pretty well known. The more... questionable definitions are the result of its rather democratic system for the addition of words and definitions, which makes a rather piquant statement about democracy in my mind.

    - MV Krug...or Vintage Krug with 15-20 years bottle age (I am still drinking the superlatyive 1976, 1979, 1981, 1982's at present)
    - 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.

    yeah, it's a champagne for people who actually like wine [​IMG] Nice selection nonetheless.

    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.

    That's Ok re: Krug vintages. The 1982 is one of my all time favourites. the 1979 getting a little on descend now but still forceful and powerful if a little apricoty. 1985 is excellent now. Richard Juhlin thinks both are superb too. As for the last four vintages. my order for current drinking would be 1989, 1995, 1990, 1988. All very worthy. For those that don't know, Richard has writen an exceptional book called 4000 Champagnes. 100s of tasting notes back to 1908. Great book, essential for any Champagane lover.

    PS - apologies for all the spelling errors. I type very quickly whilst at work!
