Lineup for dinner with friends tomorrow night I believe will be:

NV Gruet Blanc de Noirs
NV Louis Roederer Champagne Brut Premier
2011 Fess Parker Santa Rita Hills Ashley's Vyd. Chard.
2012 Francois Chidaine Vouvray Sec Les Argiles
2000 Les Tourelles de Longueville (Mag)
2003 Mas de Boislauzon CdP Cuvee du Quet
2004 Clarendon Hills Syrah Liandra
2011 Antica Terra Pinot Noir Botanica

The sparklers were solid. I actually preferred the Gruet. The two whites were very good, with the Vouvray possibly being WOTN. If it wasn't then the Antica Terra probably was. The Les Tourelles was good+ and improved throughout the evening. The CdP was good but like many 2003s didn't have any subtlety to it. The Clarendon Hills was big and disjointed.
