Well what did I do over the Holiday? We didn't have the normal Christmas dinner of Turkey and all the trimmings. We had sushi instead and repeated it again for New Years eve. The holidays provide a good excuse for drinking Champagne. Over Christmas we had a bottle of Piper-Heidseck Brut. Then on New Years Eve we opened a bottle of Lanson Black Label Brut.
The Piper-Heidseck was very strongly brut, light coloured with lemony citrus aromas. The Lanson on the other hand was a darker straw colour, a richer and slightly less brut champagne. Which do I prefer? I like them both.
We will be continuing drinking the Lanson tonight with more sushi.
