Love it! Have you tasted one yet? We tasted it at the winery and bought a bottle for our farewell picnic dinner. I scored it 94+. The first fermentation is in oak, then it spends 8 years on the lees. What did you pay for it? It was 30 Euros at the winery.

$75CAD - I bought it at the LCBO
Never tried one but was recommended by a respected palate. Now 2. Wink
I tend to like Champagne on the younger side. I've only tasted this wine twice- once at the winery in August, 2011, and a bottle with a picnic dinner a few days later. Seemed ready to go to me, but I bet w+a would lay it down. By the way, all Jean Milan's wines are 100% Grand Cru.

Finca Dofi used to be in the $85 neighborhood just a few years ago. The currency trade has really served this one well. Excellent price for the wine now.
Over the last couple of days:

2 x M.V. Krug Champagne Grande Cuvée Brut ('04 disgorgement), $120
3 x 2008 Bouchard Père et Fils Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières, $50
2 x 2008 Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Estournelles-St.-Jacques, $30
1 x 2008 Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St. Jacques, $50

Those are amazing prices. Did you find them locally?

Yes- the Krug came from Flickinger and the others from the local Binny's on close out.

There are still some of the Krug in stock, but I cleaned out my local store of the Burgs, though as you cn see, not much there to begin with.

Can't wait to see the price of this one when it'll be available (don't buy anymore "future")...

Have many vintages, but not sure if I want to pay 100$ + for that kind of wine...

I didn't buy it at the KGBO, which means I actually paid a fairly reasonable price ($69). For a great vintage of this producer, good value.

As you say, that's a pretty fair price. Wish I could get some at that price !
