Going to dinner Saturday night for our 15th anniversary at Morimoto Napa.

Morimoto

Which 1995 bubbly should I bring? I have multiple bottles of all.

1995 Charles Heidsieck Champagne Blanc des Millénaires
1995 Krug Champagne Brut
1995 Salon Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs
1995 Taittinger Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Comtes de Champagne

Any other recommendations of wines to bring? Thanks in advance.

Happy anniversary to you and your lovely bride, sir!

I have not had Salon, but I've had the other 3 in the last couple of years. I would wait a bit longer on the Krug. Of the Heidsieck and Taittinger, I prefer the latter.

It's a good life when your quandary is choosing between those four bottles to celebrate a special occasion. Smile

Twin huh? Interesting... it seems you have your champagne problems under much better control than he does Wink
I would lean toward the Heidsieck as showing best at this point in time.
That said, I wouldn't hesitate to open the Krug or Salon either and, personally, rate them both a touch higher on the 'specialness' scale for a celebration.
The Taittinger would likely be the tightest at this time, IMHO and need more time.

So a coin toss, IMO. Salon, heads...Krug, tails.

I love them all and, as Dok said, any one is a fine choice, indeed.

Congratulations on your Anniversary, DVD Wink
The two most ready to go here are the Heidsieck BdB and Taittinger Comtes BdB. I love the Salon, but is has tightened up since release and I've never been huge on the 95 Krug. I think the 95 Taittinger Comtes BdB is clearly a better wine than the Heidsieck BdB, but both would make a great choice.

I agree, and one should pull the better wine for an anniversary celebration, IMO.
