Yes,...lucky lucky boy..

I love this wine. As much as my allegence is to LGD, this wine just made you smile. Opened with a loud pop, I could not even try to contain this thing. Still straw bright and as vibrant as anything today. This is 96, fresh refreshing acidity, vibrant, bubbly, apple, blanc to blanc of course. Simply stunning! ow could something 17 years old just shrug of age with such power.

Haven't had the 96, but the NV version is our favorite bubbly.
