Appearance: Bright and clear, it has medium gold color, with watery rims and legs. Nose: Clean, with medium (+) intensity aromas of citrus fruit of lemon, green fruit of green apple, maturity notes of sugarcane, autolytic notes of brioche and lees, kernel notes of walnut, mineral notes of steely, some oxidation notes of sherry aromas. The wine is fully developed. Palate: Dry with high acidity, the wine has medium alcohol and light body. It has medium flavors of green fruit such as apple, citrus fruit of lemon, with some stone fruit of peach on the aftertaste, autolytic notes of lees and bread, mineral notes of steel, oxidation notes of sherry and maturity notes of mushroom. The wine has a medium finish. Conclusion: Very good quality Champagne with an intense nose showing amazing development, with nice complexity of some zesty and green apple characters supported by autolytic and mineral notes, the wine has strong acidity to provide crispness even after all these years, with elegance, but the finish was a bit mediocre. Even though still highly enjoyable, I think it would be even better at a slightly younger age, now is a bit too old.
Shared this elegant bottle at our wedding - magnificent when you consider its age: 39 years old! Medium topaz color, clear ,no sediment, no fiz, but some lazy bubbles yet; clean nose, somewhat nutty; clean nutty, still some lemony zip to it, medium bodied, smooth from front to back of tounge; nice long, acidic finish ..simply wonderful !!
