Champagne, France. 12.5%

Surprisingly youthful, excellent acidity. Tight concentrated. Hints of almond essence. Long future ahead of it.

Whoa, this is intense powerful champagne. Not pretty. Will benefit from more bottle age, two nights later the second half of the bottle was more charming than the first.

I’m not sure I approve of this style, but nevertheless it’s impressive, particularly coming from such a large commercial house.

Great label – unmistakenly vintage champagne!
