What do you expect after a 5000 miles travel :-(
They are best in the producing area ! Anything like a long travel
(boat ? ... ouch, plane ? ... not sure it's better !) can seriously
affect the fragile equilibrium existing in a champagne bottle. Now add
2 weeks waiting in a reseller chop in California and you're lucky it
doesn't taste vinegar ;-)
I personnaly appreciate Perrier-Jouet Rose' a lot, no specific
cuvee (cuvee are inherently more hazardeous, the standard production
from large producers uses a blend of multiple years liquors to ensure
a minimum quality and unifor taste over the years).
