This year was a little more subdued at Graham HQ with a few notable drinkers absent, yet these four made it out to the table (I largely ended up drinking Bollinger, this and eleventy beers).
I know, I know, NV Champagne is a lottery. Yet this was disgorged mid last year by my reckoning (new bottle shape and this particular one was purchased last Christmas). Gee it was good too, carrying the autolysis and weight of classic Bollinger and acidity that never looks harsh. Still my go-to ‘big house’ (though Bollinger aren’t that big) NV in classic form. 17.7/20, 92/100
