This champagne always carries its vintage well. It is typically a softer, warmer, more measured style, and makes one anxious for another glass. Always clean and open, it can be consumed when purchased, but it will benefit from at least 3 to 5 more years of aging. It is perfect for kicking off any meal, but it will also go well with a light appetizer. Seafood especially, such as crab soup, crawfish, or some boiled oysters. Nothing with too much spice however! To get the most out of the Special Club, serve it in a classic champagne flute at a lower temperature between 8°-10° C or 46°-50° F.
