Absolutely a stunner. I preferred it slightly above room temp. Paired with a cornucopia of fresh oyster-Sex on the Bay, Blue Points and Beausoleil. 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir disgorged on Jun 2015. Nose of the Krug Grand Cuvée, the oak gives it a sassy side. Slightly creamy texture, lemon curd and honeysuckle fill the mouth. Finish is over 30 sec. A can’t miss Champagne!

2008 with homemade pizza in the wood burning oven. A great pairing. The 08 is very complete. Less tension than many prior vintages. But it is Coeur de Cuvée, and the breeding comes through.
