    We served that at our wedding. Good stuff. Still drink it a lot.

    Basically, neither eggs nor asparagus go with any wine, and Champagne goes with all foods. It is like the immovable object versus the irresistible force. Or Godzilla vs. Mothra.

    And the container on-board the ship? The delivery truck from warehouse? The liquor /wine store? Friend works for Southern Wine & Spirits, I've been to the warehouse. Hot as hell. Don't believe the hype.

    Might have been the genesis of my yellow fever. Those twin, tiny chics that sang to Mothra rocked.

    Edit: Oh, Champs was good but did not really have that character of the Pierre Peters. It was very nice, apples all over the place, worked great with the meal. However, not that prolonged lees contact, yeasty/toasty/nutty think the Peters had.

    Can't you ever just +1 me, MAN?!?!?!
    Not all of them.... not anywhere near all of them. Most of them have, at the least, AC, but on 110 degree days a simple AC isn't doing you any favors.
    You are friends with someone who works at the Evil Empire of the wine industry. That is your biggest problem.


    Not surprised, are you?

    I tend to not really go for the yeasty/toasty/nutty Champs, and accordingly I'm guessing you'd like Krug.

    +1. I personally lean more toward the bright, mineral, acidic profile. But I'm happy to get down with a nice nutty Champagne every now and then.

    +1, hence my Salon, Cristal, Comtes, and other Blanc de Blanc love.

    And I love Dom and Vilmart. But I also like a lot of house Champs from the big guys.

    Dude, Peters is great wine. 15% Zinfandels aren't my favorite wines either, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy one from time to time.

    Okay, so now it's out in the open. You are basically useless to me for Champs recs.

    my love for BdB is well known to those who hath known it.

    but I drink plenty of everything else too. Dom, Vilmart, and Chiquet are ones that strike me as being in the middle ground (and Bollinger and Krug are on the other side). That's not to say that I dismiss Krug and Bollinger, not at all, it's just that my personal preference is for the brighter BdB's.

    No, they don't. They really, really don't.
    But they'll continue to sell their souls to cover their bar tabs.
