    Did you happen to try any zero or non-dosage while you were there? This style isn’t for everyone but I think they are delicious.

      Thanks for the question. Yes, I did there, and stateside. It’s an increasingly popular style. I think there are issues around the ageability of non-dosage wines. Some dosage, at least, gives a roundness that helps a Champagne age more gracefully longer. But non-dosage wines can be fine soon after bottling. The best I tried this year was from Drappier. You can find my ratings of their non-dosage wines here:
