More tired than some things

Today was the fourth anniversary of my partner moving in with me. This is know as the ‘flower’ or ‘fruit’ anniversary. We did fruit in the form of a bottle of fizz.

Grande Année 1997, Bollinger

A surprisingly mature and slightly oxidised nose. Some fruit and quite a lot of cold cocoa character. The palate was very forward and not as complex as the last bottle of this I had. Not so much Grand Année as Super Année-uated. This is not a patch on the ’96, but when it is being drank for such a happy event I cannot really complain.
