We're hosting a party and will open one or two bottles of 2008 Pertois-Moriset Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs just before midnight. I've had a couple of times and it seems ready to go.

I don’t recall ever having this wine, but the ‘99 Philipponnat Clos des Goisses was the earliest drinking vintage of their wine I can ever recall.

The '99 Cristal was nice, but is definitely in a "drink" rather than "hold" place.

I haven't had the '99 CdG. The 2000 CdGs I've had have been very solid.
And for tomorrow when the clock strikes midnight, I think we'll be having the 2003 Krug in hand to bring in 2018.
A 2006 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne is currently chilling... although I think I'm going to switch it out for a 2002 Lanson Gold Label.

We'll be drinking it with our standard NYE feast of oysters, followed by steamed lobster, and then tiger shrimps & rice in a simple lemon, white wine, olive oil & garlic sauce.

I will honestly say I have no idea, apart from the fact that our host has accumulated a nice collection of grower Champagnes, and I have no doubt something interesting will be served.
We're tasked with bringing dessert to a potluck dinner with friends tonight, so I'll be carting along a bottle of 1964 Taylor Fladgate Single Harvest Tawny Port to accompany a honey cake that my wife made.

Hosts will be providing 3 different bottlings of Taittinger Champagnes, a tribute to the fact that we had accompanied them on a tour of Taittinger in Reims in 2012. They're definitely not really serious wine people (I'mp pretty sure that Comtes will not be one of the bottles), so I'm very touched and impressed that they're doing this in an effort to please me. Finally, karma pays off! Smile
