 Five stars (FIVE ACTUAL STARS NOT THE WORDS)

 “The Best Champagne You’ve Never Heard Of #4 – Dumangin Cuvée 17, Brut NV….. A gentle, relaxed and mellow Champagne with a full-bodied, substantial presence. I had tasted both before they arrived, and already knew what a very serious Champagne the Cuvée 17 was.”

 When To Drink: Now
Breathing/Decanting: Not necessary, though the second glass was better.
