Probably well past its prime, but still fun to try such an old bottle. Very light bubbles, lots of apple, some baked dough but not near as much as I was hoping for. Not much acidity or crispness left, but smooth and pleasant.
Roasted nuts (almonds) aromas with just a bit of apple fruit. Fruit seemed subdued, perhaps the champagne was on its last legs or never had them to begin with. I served with cheese -- perhaps it would have been better with food where the tartness of the cheese wouldn’t have masked the fruit as much.
