Your next Beaujolais epiphanies could be with 20-30 year old bottles. That would take this whole thing to another level. +1 Jason- had the same realization about 5 years ago.

Maybe a youngish Dauvissat, so you don't have to worry too much about premox. '14s are pretty sparkling young. Like a Forest at $140ish
I'd be happy if someone gifted me Dauvissat.
