馃槑馃嵕馃 Champagne Egly-Ouriet Cuvee Les Vignes de Vrigny. This cuvee is extremely geeky as it is 馃挴 Pinot Meunier路 Same region路 Same producer路 Same cuvee路 Same grape路 Same disgorgement date路 鈿狅笍 BUT the wines tasted different路 馃 As we tasted them blind, we noticed they had a good amount of bottle variation. The difference here is that one was purchased and Bottle Barn and the other at Flatiron Wines. Both of which are well-regarded wine retailers路 馃嵕 One bottle was a bit more oxidized, which can be a style in Champagne. In fact, I thought very highly of the wine calling it a vintage Champagne with several years of bottle age. The second bottle had a bit more fruit to it and some oxidation, but nowhere near as much as the first wine. It came across more youthful路 馃敂 While both bottles showed well, the second bottle was the clear favorite. We concluded that the first bottle may have had a bit of heat damage. How your wine is stored at a retailer is just as important as how it is stored when you bring it home路
