Re: TN: 2010 Dom Pérignon Champagne (France, Champagne)

The bloody DP pet peeve...

1) Gift box. Unless I’m buying to gift...it seems such a waste when I buy these wines in their boxes(Costco) and rip the bottle out...throw away the box and inserts.

2) Foil. Wtf...worst and hardest foil to remove. Cakes on even more with age!👍

Re: Prototypical Chablis ?

To “get” Chablis I’d start with the greatest qpr winery around in regards to Chablis...La Chablisienne...try their Petite all the way to the Grand Cru. Won’t hurt the budget...and will show you the hierarchy. Totally satisfies your Chablis urges! Then you can branch out to complexville from there$$$!
