NOTE: futronic posted a note which might be this same wine but I wasn't certain and since it was posted back in 2002 I went ahead and started a new thread so a search may be in order.

N.V. Guy Larmandier Champagne Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut Cramant - France, Champagne, Côte des Blancs, Champagne (12/10/2008)

Tasted December 10, 2008 at an offline.

Light yellow to yellow color in the glass, clear hue throughout with light, fine beading. Nose of matchstick, sherry and light notes of yellow fruits. Flavors of tart yellow apples with a bit of lemon. Light mousse, short finish. Light to medium acidity, light to medium body. Drink now. Probably a little over the hill based on performance so no rating.

Joe, Joe, Joe... Once again you have probably failed to follow directions, which has resulted in an unsatisfactory showing for a wine.

This Champagne should be enjoyed by itself as an aperitif, or with poultry in a cream sauce. You should take time to allow it to open up, and then you'll be able to appreciate its strength, its complexity and its great length. It should be kept for two years (it will gain in depth) and much longer if it wins you over.

Did you try it with poultry in a cream sauce? Did you take the time to allow it to open up? Did you keep it for two years? Did it win you over?

I think if you answered "No" to any of these questions, you need to re-examine just how you're drinking wine.
