Rich, multidimensional, highly aromatic nose of pear, red berries, apple, honey, toast and spice. Extremely rich and concentrated, with its medium to full body leavened by bright citrus notes and compelling minerality. Great inner-mouth aromas. Conveys an impression of powerful yet remarkably fine raw materials. The spicy finish offers exceptional persistence and richness.
I highly recommend the Veuve Clicquot 1990 La Grande Dame. It is exquisitely rich and accessible, yet bursting with potential. (RP)
Tight and straightforward, but quite complex. Licorice and lime grace the linear palate. A lot of intense but soft fruit in the mouth. An immensely clear, forward and stately Champagne. One of those “big name” status bubblies that does what it takes to deserve its praise.
Assertive and buttery style, dry and bold in flavor, but with the lively effervescence and toasty finish for balance.
This is shining where the 1995 and 1996 misfired: wondrously complex, yeasty, cakey, luxurious, spicy. Still has a tight structure on the palate, but really cranks up the complexity on the finish. Fabulous saline and smoke note. 18/20 points.
