2004 Drappier Grande Sendree Brut

Grande Sendree Brut
Grande Sendree Brut 
RRP 95

It's rare to find a prestige cuvee from Champagne for less than $150-$200, even on special. Grande Sendree is one. Very complex and full-bodied, with nutty, vanilla cream, peach and spice characters, it's smooth, lingering, traditional and slightly Bollinger-like. (Cork; 12 per cent alcohol.)
