The other day I ordered Piper-Heidsieck Champagne Brut non-vintage by the glass for my wife and myself. The waiter brought us two glasses and set them before us. Then he opened a 187ml bottle, commonly known as a “split,” and poured the contents in my wife’s glass, and opened another for me. I had been in conversation with my wife and hadn’t noticed the screw top on the bottle until he poured the wine. But it drew my attention.
Next thought: I sure hope the Champagne tasted as good as my colleague Bruce Sanderson’s 91-point review. And indeed it was.
