I recognize that many of you are probably more familiar with the Grande Année or the R.D's of this world, however my recent purchase of some Bollinger Special Cuvée and some Billecart Salmon Brut Réserve represent a big increase in my traditional "sparkling" budget (until now we had always stuck with bottles at about half the price).
I also believe that one's enjoyment of the finer foods in life is often influenced by the circumstances in which they are consumed....If you do it wrong, the taste is "lost" amongs many other aspects requiring your attention (guests, food, tension of the Day and other generic distractions).
Hence I'd like these bottles to be drunk in best possible manner (food pairings, time of the day ecc...).
