I asked for this during EP and was allocated 1 bottle. lol
How much was it at EP? I just grabbed one to try and it was 120, not cheap but not terrible I thought when ppl were complaining about the Bourgogne being 120.

I've gotta say that I was wholly unimpressed by the '12 Presidence. Maybe it was because I decided to pop it the day it was delivered but it was just mean, lean and overly acidic with no fruit to speak of. I've got two left and will hold them for several years before retrying. I'm hoping that bottl...

Haven’t seen a TN on here but this was just spectacular. Light toast and fruit on first sniff, abundant mousse, lemon lime and exotic fruits and florals on the nose, lychee, starfruits, etc, with a crisp, acidic palate. This tastes nothing like champagne but is fantastic in its own unique way. It’s ...
