    Default Dom,Montrachet, Batard and Weinbach VT

    Saturday night we were invited to a dinner for some friends visiting
    from Vermont. All seafood so the host did white burgs from his ample
    cellar. I brought the dessert wine.

    2002 Dom Perignon with crispy sweetbread lasagna-Great nose of honey,
    toast and flowers. Somewhat ripe on the palate with forward
    fruitiness typical of DP. Nice mousse and finsih of chalk and
    brioche. Nice "B+"

    2005 Boillot Montrachet with rock lobster baby asperagus and spring
    pea saute. Decanted for an hour. Firm bright nose of lemon zest and
    gravel. A bit tight and very fine on the palate. Fresh lemons, a
    hint of pineapple, mint and finishing with very limestone notes.
    Needs time "B"

    2004 Louis Latour Batard Montrachet with Dover sole lemon/caper buerre
    blanc. Darker in the glass than the Montrachet. Rich nose of honey,
    vanilla and orange marmalade. Supple and soft on the palate.
    Tropical fruit, butter and lemon curd on the palate. "A-"

    1999 Weinbach Alsace Gewurtztraminer Altenbourg VT with pear tarts.
    Getting a deep golden color in the glass. Nose of spicy ginger and
    candied fruit. Sweet but not cloying. Honey, and gingerbread with
    orchard fruits on the palate. "A"

    I have always wondered if LVMH sells different batches of Dom Perignon in
    different countries. I think I have crossed paths with DP two or three
    times and never thought it was up to its price tag or the expectatives
    associated with the brand name.

    Sure, I am the kind of guy that prefers the small grower's Champagne
    over the big house, but I think I am able to be past my own prejudice
    when it comes to appreciate what's in the glass. And, actually, I
    remember a blind tasting where Dom Perignon was present and was the one
    that all the present liked less (there was Krug MV, Salon 96, RD 96 in
    that tasting, along with a couple of small growers top cuvées).

    My theory is that Spain is not an important market for LVMH and we only
    get plonk wine with a Dom Perignon label (and price tag).

    I think that Moet has a "house" style for DP and perhaps a different
    blend for some markets. I find DP to usually have a soft fruity
    profile with lots of subtle notes and perhaps a feminine quality to it
    as opposed to perhaps the Krug style of stong assertiveness. I guess
    that what makes it all so interesting. Personally I prefer smaller
    grower houses also. Since I was a guest i wasn't going to second
    guess the hosts choice of pairings so I suffered silently...:-)

    thanks for notes., Glad no premOx in white Burgs. For my tastes, Weinbach is a bit variable, but when they are "on" they are fantastic, thanks for notes
