Reply to "April 2020 - What are you drinking?"

Michel Arnould "La Grande CuvĂ©e" Brut 

Definitely on the sweeter side, but just delicious.  I had only had the basic NV, this step up is still only $40 and it has more depth.  Buttered brioche, cashews, almonds, pears and a lint of lemon.  Rich, fuller bodied... and scarcely "Brut".  Having been drinking mostly extra bruts recently, this was a bit shocking -- but it isn't off-putting once the startle wears off.  Long finish.  Definitely more hedonistically tasty than elegant or refined.  $40, Michel Arnould strikes again with killer value.  Highly recommended for the price.
