There is but it seems to be closed for further comment.
That's OK - there's a replacement that's right up @Daver6's alley: Natural wine? Anyone else a fan?

:p

Bad day in Sydney , smoky sky and 37 degrees ,luckily cool breeze finally came by.
I don't drink much whites, mainly semillons but this had me and bought a dozen for the last 3 vintages.

loads of fresh fruit on the nose , it's smooth and soft , flowers and melon , a long finish at the end but I don't think I will keep this wine for long term , maybe just on the 10 year mark.

After five weeks away in the old world drinking mostly Portuguese and Spanish wines I’m looking forward to open some good Aussie stuff.

I was however very fortunate to drink some quality champagnes during travel, making long haul flights much more enjoyable :)

Nope Pommery won’t cut it in that company - I always have a few botts Pommery in the cellar as it kinda became a fave of the Ette’s after touring there - we do drink out of Pommery glasses we bought from there shop.

As I have ousted elsewhere the 20 boxes Pommery I bought have all been handballed onto family and friends.

Now back to topic at hand - I have now given the Comptes in SQ F 3 x serious workouts - it is way short of Krug! I also had 3 visits to TPR over past week - 3 times staff opened new botts CH Rare for me - it is so far above the Comptes not funny - wish they had that onboard in rotation with Krug instead of Comptes

He won’t be interested in your Pommery bonanza then? :)
I had a case in the basket ready to press send when thought to myself it’s silly to order wine I don’t really enjoy drinking just because it’s much below RRP.

Comtes is 100% Chardonnay, very different than Krug and Piper maybe that’s why it wasn’t to your taste.
