We ushered in the new year with a '98 Dom Perignon. What are you drinking?


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

Still working on it, but it's a beauty. Buy lots if you find it under $100.

Enjoying a full day of football, prime filets on the grill, and finishing up half a bottle of N.V. Maurice Vesselle Champagne Grand Cru Brut Rosé leftover from last night, along with a bottle of 2001 Seven Hills Merlot Klipsun Vineyard.

I have been enslaved by work and the woman. That's not to say I haven't been enjoying wine!

Hey Dub, how is that Ramey, I got some '06 with my JJ Buckely 1/2 off cards, and was wondering if they needed some time? Thanks.

I won't be drinking any alcohol this month at my Dr.'s request. Six week hiatus so he can get some accurate blood work. I'm actually looking forward to it.

Max, did you lose a bet? Razz (JK)

Do you buy sparkling wines from Australia?

I also bet Harvey Steiman LOVED the wine. Big Grin

On New Year's Eve, with some excellent sushi, we had

- NV Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve
- 1996 Dom Perignon
- 2002 Dom Perignon
- 1996 Krug

and a couple of small bottles of sake that were very good and whose names I have to get.

The surprise of the evening for me was how well the Heidsieck showed. It was not a large step behind the other wines, except the Krug which just sort of powers over the others in intensity. But for well under half the cost of the other Champagnes, this is will be a definite purchase for me. The disgorgement date was 2008 and it was bought one or two years ago, so I'm assuming that more recent releases will be what I'll find now; I'm hoping it will be similar.

Cheers!
