Great day!! Already looking forward to next year. Next year I need to pace myself better. Just too much to try and I missed most the white burgundy.

I didn't attend this year IW, but it's a $50 entry fee which is applied to purchases over $500 on the day of the tasting. It's worth the $50 even if you don't buy anything.

TLV, the 2004 dom Ruinart Blanc de Blancs or rose?

They had the bdb open at the tasting and it is superb. I also had a chance to try it last year alongside the rose at Ruinart in Reims. Both are truly excellent.

The Blanc de Blancs. We’ve gone through six already and I was searching for more. A great price for sure.
