I am being affected (infected?) by the enthusiasm for Champagne on this forum, and also by the various threads pointing out the utility of half bottles in general.

Jim -

That is a really good score, I drink a boatload of this stuff in the 375 format. Not a mind-blowing wine, but extremely satisfying champagne for the price. It is a house favorite. My wife and I aren’t experts in champagne but we dig it.

Nice! I reloaded some 750's, but was shut out of the half bottles.

Cheers,

Since I base my annual wine budget on credit card billing cycles I've closed out 2018. Happy to report I was down 10% from 2017!

To celebrate both that and so far surviving a thoroughly miserable 2018 (hope I didn't just jinx myself) I just spent too much on a mixed case of wine as a Hanukkah present to myself.

6x 1999 Musar
1x 1955 Gonzalez Byass Sherry
1x 1969 Patriarch Vosne Romanee
1x 1966 Sandeman Port
1x 1966 Warre Port
1x 1977 Smith Woodhouse Port
1x 1962 Chateau Giscours
Ripe fruit isn't necessarily a flaw.

Table & Vine Champagne "gala" yesterday, so a mixed case of Champagnes. All NV stuff I tasted and liked that will be consumed over the course of the next year or two. Bereche, Gaston Chiquet and a couple of others.

Just curious... why 2017 over past vintages? Why do you feel the need to "ask" for them either?

I relapsed.

I'm giving myself a pass.

I bought two -- only two!! -- bottles of the 2008 Jacquesson Rosé Champagne Dizy Terres Rouges envoyer offered yesterday. We love this wine, tried for the first time at Les Crayeres, it has always been tough to find in the states, and from what I understand Jacquesson no longer makes it (winesearcher shows a grand total of 2 vintages available in three shops nationwide). When we drank our last bottle this summer, we lamented its disappearance.

So when this popped up, I could not resist. Back on the wagon!

BTW, if you haven't tried it, and you ever see it, I highly recommend it. It is darker, and more wine-ish, than any other rose we drink. Tart strawberries, lively acidity, and a perfect foil for food.
