Still a bit sleepy, probably exhausted with all the wonderful showing off that marked the first 18 mths post release.How was the Moet, Ray?
Wife's 60th so the family decided a Champagne taste was on the cards! The Ruinart was off however. Smelt of mushrooms and tasted awful. Cork was ok, I wondered if the shop had it in their display window. They are happy for us to take it back though. The Comtes was special though.View attachment 20416
I still have some 2006 in Magnum. Drank well enough a little while ago but thought may need more time to develop.From 2021 until 2035.

Quite pale and Debbi thought it was a bit diluted compared to say the 2012.
I think Moët have their own version of Mytik as this seemed to have paralleled similar to a conventional cork.
Still it seems any development is glacial, I will have another in a few years, but am not convinced we may not have seen the best of this when it was a youthful show off.

Looking at this picture makes me feel distinctly queasy!A rather boring Cava. But we went to a pretty decent wine shop and deli. Kind of like Majestic but still good and with a lot of ham, cheese and tinned fish.
I realised that I know almost nothing about Spanish wine and I don’t want to drink 90% of the reds when it’s almost 30 degrees out.
