Gentlemen, it’s been a privilege flying with you

You never know what events are to transpire to get you home.1September1701 (1 of 1)

Once upon a time, a young sorta middle aged chap worked with another slightly older chap who always banged on about this NV champagne “Gardet”.  “It’s served in first class in a few airlines and people in the know in Champagne drink it themselves he would say”*.

I would reply with things like “but have you tried Krug” and “some vintage NZ methode is quite nice”.  They didn’t agree.

Finally, after a number of years, the middle aged chap stopped in at the FWDC up North where the wildlings are, and made off with a bottle of this sacred-yet-exceptionally-affordable stuff.

It was good.  It was $50 eroonies-of-a-smack.  It had everything, and then some.  Possibly a little more acidic than I would like long term, as in two bottles of this in a row would involve a bit of mylanta following, but I am being picky.

Not as good as the Tohu, better than or equal too pretty much everything else.

Thanks Richard.
