Noticed it, too, when I looked at the menu of a flight to North America early in April. Well done LH!

I just hope that LH is loading more champagne these days. Last time IAH-FRA they had a SINGLE bottle ... pathetic. Hopefully, since the cabin is quite empty next Tuesday ... there will be a lot left for me

I thought it was very nice. Smooth and balanced. Would I pay $150 for a bottle ... probably not ... maybe $100.

I kinda like it and would say it is about as much (or not) worth the 150 as Dom, Louise, LPGS, etc. Sampled all of them plus Krug on recent flights and have to admit I found the Krug (both regular and rose) to be exceptionally tasty.

Yes, the Krug 2004 on SQ is fabulous, we can only ever dream of seeing that in LH F..... but as long as we are spared Al.... G.....n it’s survivable

And the Krug Rose on BR in J’s Hello Kitty flights is lovely, too. But probably way too expensive for LH Group.

I would even consider the change an improvement, as one can get LPGS on LX all the time, but the Piper is more rare (sorry about the pun).
