Disappointing, this one. For a Champagne from one of the greater vintages, it seemed a little harsh, and less complex than I expected. Medium green-gold colour, with medium bead and a moderately persistent mousse. Very creamy aroma with some biscuit notes, but surprisingly simple. Crisp palate, but a little… lean? Medium length. Drinkable, but not satisfying. Took a few weeks to getting around to writing this, just because of that!
