I think the wine has improved in Club Europe since the changes have come into affect. I was never very keen on the Spanish white but this NZ SB was delightful!

A report from the CCR where the rose champagne is now Jeeper Grand Rose. I’ve not heard of it before but it is delicious. Relatively dry with some fruit but still moreishly refreshing than sickly sweet. I’ve had too much of it to describe it any further...
mtikky and argonath like this.

A couple of decent wines in GF T5 earlier today. Au Pied du Mont Chauve Saint Aubin Premier Cru Le Charmois 2014 and a Chateau Cantlemerle Grand 2009 Cru Classe Haut Medoc. Shame there’s no decent food to go with them.

+1 for the Berry, a fresh take on Champ. I agree Rothschild is disappointing, too pretentious and heavy. If it wasn't for the name they would probably retail for £29.

I disagree on Moet though, surely consistent throughout the years, but lacks of personality. I did enjoy the 2009 vintage though, but the NV is really mediocre IMO.

What is the current F champagne? Still LPGS? Also would be grateful if someone could tell me where to find current F menus. My Syd to Sin flight is in November. Thank you

Canard-Duchêne Grande Cuvée Des Lys Charles VII is the Champagne of choice in GF this morning, and very nice too!

A nice treat in LHR T5 GF tonight - Chateau Cantlemere 2009. Drinking very well although it is concerning how developed the 09 vintage is already, not a vintage that should be laid down and forgotten about, they are peaking suprisingly early. Parker and Rolland have a lot to answer for.

That's a $70-80 bottle.

Some pleasant Bouchard Santenay Blanc 2015 in LGW GF last night. Bubbles were Castelnau Vintage 2012 and Jeeper Rose.

In here now and was disappointed to see the Castelnau in GF, this is the same stuff as in GC? I thought they were moving to Canard-Duchêne Charles VII or is that only LHR?

Taittinger Prélude champagne in LHR T5 GF this morning. Much better than the Henriot and I prefer it to the Jeeper Rosé which I find a bit medicinal.
