Serious Bubbly

I recently co-hosted a Palmes d'Or Champagne tasting with the Wine School, the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia, and Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte's winemaker, Jean-Pierre Vincent. It was, to say the least, an amazing evening. We tasted the 1998, 1997, 1996, 1995, 1992, 1991, 1990, and 1985 vintages of this top cuvee, and each one seemed better than the next.

I went home with a bottle of the 1985 and opened it recently at my parents' house as we celebrated the birth of my new nephew. I was able to sneak away from the festivities for a few minutes to report on the wine. Check out the video below for my tasting notes.
