Lunch with Drappier Grande Sendree 2000

Just come back from a very enjoyable family lunch where b-in-law Beavington served a Drappier Grand Sendree 2000 in response to my trio of Portuguese wines. It's a fabulous Champagne: intense and alive. Of all the prestige cuvees, this is one of the best values in the whole region.

Champagne Drappier Grande Sendree 2000
Golden colour. Wonderful stuff: there's a lifted nose that is intensely toasty lively apple, citrus and herb notes. The palate has lovely savoury intensity with notes of minerals, lemons and spice. Beautifully poised and intense with great balance. Still youthful, and with so much personality. 93/100

Jamie, you appear to have used 'value' as a noun a la Robert Parker. This is a heinous crime against the English language.
