This non-vintage Champagne was a delightful accompaniment to our New Year's Eve dinner of steamed Maine lobster and a tossed salad. The lobsters were sweet and succulent (and easy to pry out of the shell), almost as though they were soft shell (but it's wrong season and wrong coast for soft shellers). The champagne was medium bodied, with bright acidity and a ton of scrubbing bubbles to refresh the palate. Good citrus, apple, and pear notes. Toast, of course. Yum.
